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 Livingston Manor Central School in Sullivan County, NY, was a product of 1930s Works Progress Administration development. The school houses a remarkable collection of panels printed by the notable French wallpaper firm, Zuber et Cie. The naïve romanticism of the tableaux, created in the 1830s by artist Jean Jacques Deltil, offers an idealized portrait of social democracy in the New World as interpreted by a French citizen who had never stepped away from his Old World shores. The works liberally portray a perfectly integrated world of black bourgeoisie amidst the white (as seen in this detail), and, in doing so, appear to reach for both Utopian ideals and political satire. One thing is for certain, there's nothing in the Martha Stewart collection to approach the spirit of these wall treatments.
