Ugliest Christmas Sweater Contest:)
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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

The library in our town is sponsoring an "Ugliest Christmas Sweater Contest," December 14-18th.
Yours truly decided to try out for it..The prize if won is a nice book bag with a zipper on top.. The librarian told me my chances were good because not too many tried out for it..LOL..They were more than delighted to find a victim who was willing to enter the contest.
This is the sweater that I wore today.....I am not showing it here, but I wore a silver sparkly belt with this sweater at the library and added some Christmas bulbs dangling from it. That would have been fine, but when it came time to put my coat on it looked like I had gained 25 pounds...so I found a very large black furry coat, (I call it my gorilla coat) and arranged the bulbs so that they stuck out by my hips instead of my stomach...What we don't go through to try and win a contest:) The names will be drawn later from a box to determine the winner:)
Oh yes, the librarian took my picture and had me stand next to a Poinsettia
plant ... I hope it turned out:) Anyway, the book bag is on my Christmas wish list.
Update: I decided to change my previous entry that I had for this theme and will use this image instead which looks more like Christmas ...My husband and I will for the first time, since we've been married be spending Christmas in our own home this year...Prior to this, we used to spend every Christmas with my parents but Dad has been dead since 2003, and mother is in the rest home as of this year. The weather has not been the best for traveling anyway.
