PROTEST: Taking a stand against pornography
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.

This rose is dedicated to all the JPG members who are willing to take a stand against the pornography recently posted by foxharvard and his ilk. (http://www.jpgmag.com/photos/2435342). JPG was, and should remain, a family-friendly site where photographs can be posted and enjoyed by all.
I will be leaving this site - as will many others - if JPG does not change their current choice of allowing unacceptable images.
I have written to JPG, and hope others will as well, asking them to please rethink their acceptance of smut and porn on this site, especially since their rules specifically state: "We're okay with artful nudes; however, sexually explicit work is not appropriate."
I am still traveling, so Internet access is very limited, but I felt so strongly after seeing a spotlighted photo by this person, I had to act!
Update: The filter system has been changed.
