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.

I ran into Elijah while on a photo shoot at 5Pointz Aersol Art Center. Elijah is a member of the "House of Xtravaganza", one of the more famous and enduring sanctuaries for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Hispanic youths in New York City. The house, like similar houses, is named in the style of European fashion houses (e.g. House of Chanel) and is an affiliation of young drag queens who coalesced around the Harlem drag ball scene of the late 1970s through the mid-1990s. The Harlem ball scene is where "voguing" was created and members of the House of Xtravaganza have been featured in numerous music videos including Madonna's "Vogue"and documentaries such as "Paris is Burning"and "How Do I Look."
Long Island City, New York.
