Scandal for JPGers everywhere who have had to deal with political corruption
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).

In 2009 I participated in JPG’s 365 Days theme. I uploaded a pic a day of myself. On 25 June 2009 I uploaded this pic of myself infront of my old iMac showing a pic of Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) crying at his press conference. He stayed to complete his term. It seems the voters of SC liked the Lt. Gov. even less than they did Mark.
If you are interested in political corruption in the USA these two wikipedia sites would be a good place to start:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_federal_political_scandals_in_the_United_Stateshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_state_and_local_political_scandals_in_the_United_States“Don’t buy a single vote more than necessary. I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay for a landslide.” Joseph P. Kennedy
“The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference.” Bess Myerson
“Corruption is worse than prostitution. The latter might endanger the morals of an individual, the former invariably endangers the morals of the entire country.” Karl Kraus
“Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Lord Acton
PS I took my 365 Days pic to Picnik to give it a little B & W effect’s selective color and a Border frame
Oh...yeah...and if you're interested in my 365 Days photo shoot you can find all 365 lame pics here:
In the story Selective color.
