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).

The dark basement of the foundry is home to Turlough Carolan. For 16 years he has worked amidst the burning metals, sharp blue lights and ominous steel beams. Where the sky is veiled by the choking fumes of sulphates. He does not belong here yet this is where he ended up. As a boy he wanted to be a ballerina but as he grew in both height and flesh he felt his dream seep away as sure as the metals he dissolved. until one day he met Gabriella. Gabriella, the daughter of one of the steel workers spent many unsupervised hours at the foundry and would often explore the catacombs beneath it's belly. This led her to Turlough. Sad and unfulfilled he let her know of his boyhood dream. And with time an extraordinary friendship emerged between the two that allowed them both to throw into the shade their past shackles, shine and dance the hidden language of their souls.
In the story Ballerina Obscura.
