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).

Hebrews 13: 2
This sweet chipmunk must have felt lonely today because she allowed me to get right up next to her outside to take her picture. and believe me that normally does not happen. They are usually very nervous and skittish creatures...Most of my pictures of chipmunks have been through a window...She was a cutie and she was not afraid of the camera. She was listening to me speak to her when I shot this image and she had been filling her cheek pouches with sunflower seeds as you can see.
There are many of us at JPG who are missing the members in the community that took their site down. They were not only friends, but they put their whole heart and soul into their work. I wish them all my blessings... This page is dedicated to these fine people..... We all feel a sense of loss and it seems different without them...
JPG holds many fond memories for me when I signed up as a member... It was a close knit community and we shared a lot of laughter with our love for photography, plus we learned from each other...That is a rare commodity to find in a site this size and I wish there would not have been division that caused some to leave but that there would instead be more of a vision for peace and harmony in the world...This is what our photography needs to embrace...
Update: 12/10/ 2015: Over 5 years have gone by since I wrote my piece above where I got a little
long winded but I still believe in the vision for peace and harmony in the world....
