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).

Free libraries feed back to the community. My little story: I came back to the US, with no money after a year of rural traveling in India. The only place I could work out of with no pay (and without feeling guilty as in a coffee shop) was a library. At first I was posting my resume for jobs. In the same time I was sorting out my photos from India. While there, day after day, I got to chat with the librarians and the senior librarian suggested that I give a presentation and talk about my experience in India. I never gave a public talk before. I went for it. We scheduled a few months ahead and I worked on the presentation, the invitation, the publicity. The library had all the expensive facility and audio visual equipment which without it I could never share this experience with many others in a rich and comfortable setting. The event had about 40 community participants, lasted about 3 hours. It was a talk so there was a discussion and Q&A.
Eventually I did that and still do share my India experience in many other libraries. It started at the Durant library in Hollywood and continues for almost 2 years now across California and Arizona. It is always free to the public. I travel and many times receive donations and even better, being hosted by local participants who become friends. I feel this free sharing that goes both ways is letting me experience America and my life in a way I never felt before. It replenishes trust, involvement, compassion and strengthens the community. Public libraries make it possible.
