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).

Lolo Marsi is 76 years old and has been taking photographs since he was in high school. His passion for photography drove him to learn more and improve on his craft.
As a photojournalist, he has been in different places covering events for local newspapers. He then went on as a wedding photographer and was able to put his children through college because of his unwavering zeal in taking photos.
I now came across him on a Saturday afternoon in Malate Church waiting for a baptism ceremony that he will be covering.
As I was about to enter the church, Lolo Marsi saw the camera hanging on my neck and gave me a warm smile. I stopped and chat with him about photography and how it continues to change.
As i was talking to Lolo Marsi, it occurred to me that despite all the change that photography has undergone, one thing will surely stay: the innate love and passion of a photographer to capture inspiring moments.
Thank you, Lolo Marsi.
