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).

This is an impromptu portrait I took of a South Korean woman who was participating in a G20 protest hosted in Seoul. I know nothing about her personally, yet it seems fair to assume that she has lived a long, hard life. I couldn't help but be inspired by her given that, after all she has surely been through and continues to be subjected to, she remains firm, standing up to and rejecting the current socio-economic system that has abused her and billions of others in ways we affluent could never fathom. One look into this woman's worn eyes should be enough to move anyone with a conscious to ask themselves how, in a world full of self-proclaimed humanitarians, people such as this can continue to be brushed under the rug, forgotten in the name of apathy and convenience.
This is the sixth photo of my Essay, representing another, less commonly seen side of Korea.
