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).

Robie Hobley, Emily Dickinson enthusiast, 2002. (Scanned silver gelatine print.)
Commemorating the death of Emily Dickinson, there is an annual mid-May guided walk in Amherst, MA, the small American town where she was born and lived all of her life (1830-1886). This particular year (2002), the day was a cold one, with sleet and hail in the air, and the official tour was cancelled. A small party of us went on an improvised walk all the same. This photo was taken immediately after Robie Hobley had read out one of his favourite Dickinson poems:
"Some keep the Sabbath going to Church - / I keep it, staying at Home - / With a Bobolink for a Chorister - / And an Orchard, for a Dome - // Some keep the Sabbath in Surplice - / I, just wear my Wings - / And instead of tolling the Bell, for Church - / Our little Sexton - sings, // God preaches, a noted Clergyman - / And the sermon is never long, / So instead of getting to Heaven, at last - / I'm going, all along."
(# 236, Franklin edition)
