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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Water bus ("sundbÃ¥ten") in Kristiansund, Norway. May 2010.
Since 1876, such boats have ferried people between the three islands -- populated as early as the stone age -- upon which Kristiansund is built (current population some 23,000 inhabitants).
Kristiansund hosts the annual Nordic Light International Festival of Photography, which is becoming a tradition: it started in 2006, so this year's festival was the fifth in a row. Nordic Light has already attracted top world-class photographers such as JoÃ«l-Peter Witkin, Elliott Erwitt, Chris Rainier and Romano Cagnoni, to mention but a few.
The water bus ferries festival goers and photographers from the main island with the festival office and most of the exhibition venues to another main venue for a few days once a year. But the local population enjoys its services all year round.
