Kids Playing in bullets dump camp
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).

In the Western Sahara refugee camps near the Tindouf region, Algeria, two kids play with bullets that the army drops as dump near their homes.
Western Sahara was invaded in 1975 by Morocco, and people was moved to this refugee camps. Even when the armed conflict stoped in 1991, kids born here are victims of this "cold war" that Moroccan King keeps against the Polisario (Western Sahara army) since that year. New generations are born and raised inside the camps and show the foreigners the remains of war such as mines, tanks and bullets. Not knowing when this is going to end, they grow up hoping of moving to Spain or studying in another arab country.
