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).

I had a business trip to Orlando recently and contacted Judy Wanamaker in advance about the possibility of a meet-up.
Judy organized a wonderful weekend. She and her husband, Wayne, invited me to stay with them in their lovely home (Crystal River), and I can attest that their hospitality is second to none.
On Sunday morning, Wayne and Judy took me to the Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park, where we saw a number of Florida's protected species, including quite a few manatee.
That afternoon, Judy invited Steve and Jean Creamer (Inverness) and Dawn Duffield (Tampa) to join us. Wayne rented a pontoon, and we spent several hours motoring up and down the Homosassa River. The views were spectacular.
Clockwise, from upper left: Dawn and Steve (at first, it was cold); Wayne, our skipper; Dawn and what appears to be a Nikon lens; and Jean and Judy.
(Please be sure to visit Judy's, Jean's, and Dawn's pages for a look at their photos.)
These JPG meet-ups are fun. I have enjoyed meet-ups in Arizona, Las Vegas, Idaho, New Hampshire, Maine, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida.
There are some great people at JPG.
Thanks for stopping by!
