If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

It's tough working for the phone company these days, lol!
But seriously, I took this photograph at Z-Day 2009. Z-Day is an annual zombie event run by students attending the Rhode Island School of Design. Volunteers get makeup and blood splattered all over them and then descend on the streets of Providence, terrorizing its residents. I had such a great time at this year's event. I dressed up as a reporter and lugged around my D200 taking photographs of the other zombies. This telephone company worker typified the creative uniforms that the students wore. Afterall, in the event of a zombie invasion, every walk of life would be affected!
For more information on Providence's Z-Day event, check out stopthevirus.org. I have a bunch of images from the event in one of my Facebook galleries.
