When Mayday was not for shoping
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).

As a teenager, back in Transylvania, I was very excited about 1st of May parades. They were a BIG thing. As a young Pioneer of great conviction - due in equal measure to naiveté and brain washing - I was very proud to be given the starring role to bang a drum in the first row. My poor Mother was afraid that I'll catch pneumonia as I refused to wear anything but the obligatory uniform even if it was unseasonally cold.
By 1967 when I took this shot, I was content to look upon the event as just another photo opportunity. The disillusionment came a year later when the Soviets marched into Prague.
