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).

"Oh my name it is nothin' / My age it means less
The country I come from / Is called the Midwest
I's taught and brought up there / The laws to abide
And that land that I live in / Has God on its side.
Oh the history books tell it / They tell it so well
The cavalries charged / The Indians fell
The cavalries charged / The Indians died
Oh the country was young / With God on its side.
Oh the Spanish-American / War had its day
And the Civil War too / Was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes / I's made to memorize
With guns in their hands / And God on their side.
Oh the First World War, boys / It closed out its fate
The reason for fighting / I never got straight
But I learned to accept it / Accept it with pride
For you don't count the dead / When God's on your side.
When the Second World War / Came to an end
We forgave the Germans / And we were friends
Though they murdered six million / In the ovens they fried
The Germans now too / Have God on their side.
I've learned to hate Russians / All through my whole life
If another war starts / It's them we must fight
To hate them and fear them / To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely / With God on my side.
But now we got weapons / Of the chemical dust
If fire them we're forced to / Then fire them we must
One push of the button / And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions / When God's on your side.
In a many dark hour / I've been thinkin' about this
That Jesus Christ / Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you / You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot / Had God on his side.
So now as I'm leavin' / I'm weary as Hell
The confusion I'm feelin' / Ain't no tongue can tell
The words fill my head / And fall to the floor
If God's on our side / He'll stop the next war."
