The Great Pumpkin Festival
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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Among Dallasâ€™s favorite fall happenings is The Great Pumpkin Festival. Featuring a pumpkin patch with thousands of pumpkins, a 15â€™ pumpkin house, face painting, art shows and concerts, and over 22,000 chrysanthemums, this yearly event is held at the Dallas arboretum from the end of September through the first of November. Iâ€™ve had loads of fun taking pictures at this festival since the fall of the year Sasha, my eight-year-old granddaughter, was born. Captured this shot in the pumpkin patch when Sasha was four and her baby sister, Ashlyn, was almost three months old. Still chuckle over the way Ashlyn looks in this pic. She was sound asleep and because of the way my daughter, Kim, and I had to prop her up, her little cheeks look a lot chubbier than they were.
