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).

Calle de Lorca, Viznar, Granada
Tree in Viznar, Granada, Spain. A pasted poem (el olivo - the olive), left as a memorial for the Spanish Poet Federico García Lorca, who it is believed was executed, along with a one legged school teacher, Dióscoro Galindo, and plumber and part-time bullfighter,Francisco Baladi, near this spot on 19 August 1936 by local Falange - Nationalist militia - on 19 August 1936 at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War (17 July 1936 to 1 April 1939). He was thrown into an unmarked grave somewhere between Víznar and Alfacar, near Granada. Biographer, Ian Gibson states that García Lorca´s assassination was part of a campaign of mass executions directed to eliminate all the supporters of the left-wing Popular Front. The dossier compiled at Franco's request has yet to surface.
