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).

During the first time Fred and I lived in Italy, we took a walking tour of medieval Rome. Just as we approached the charming Fontana della Tararughe (water fountain of the tortoises that was built in 1581), I saw what appeared to be the oldest walking man I’d ever seen. His face was amazing, one that clearly spoke of Ancient Rome. I so wanted to capture those telltale facial features, but the hunched over body they belong to rushed by me. Clearly this fascinating man needed to be somewhere. Though I wanted to run after him and somehow discreetly take frontal pictures of him, I settled for this shot. It’s one I posted shortly after I joined the JPG community. Sadly, loads of graffiti adorn many walls of Roma. Chances are that form of expression even existed in Ancient Rome.
