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).

The beach ball water tower is a Pensacola Beach landmark and nonfunctional water tower located near the Gulfside Pavilion at Casino Beach.
Formerly owned by the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority, the role of the tower was replaced by the three water tanks located near the Bob Sikes Bridge. Although the tower is no longer used to store water for the Santa Rosa Island community, the Santa Rosa Island Authority voted 5-1 on March 9, 2005 to keep the landmark in its place at an estimated annual cost of $13,000-$14,000 for maintenance SRIA Board member and restaurateur McGuire Martin, whose Crabs and Flounders establishments would benefit from the twelve parking spaces occupied by the tower, cast the dissenting vote. "I'd rather have the parking spots," he said.
ECUA sold the tower to the Island Authority for $1 on February 22, 2007. Image was captured by a camera suspended by a kite line. Kite Aerial Photography (KAP)
