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 1964, Dwight D. Eisenhower called Andrew Jackson Higgins "the man who won the war for us". Higgins invention, the Land Craft Vehicle Personnel, participated in every major invasion of the war: North Africa, Sicily, Italy, D-Day, Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Saipan, Tinian, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. Without Higgins's famous landing crafts, the total outcome of World War II may have have been seriously altered. Higgins Industries was reponsbible for creating approximately 20,000 of these vessels. Higgins employed and paid all of his workers equally; thus having a company that was seen as being socially ahead of it's times. By employing and treating his workers fair and justly, they inturn produced vessels that dramatically aided in the succeess of winning World War II.
This photograph was taken at the Andrew Jackson Higgins World War II Memorial, located in Columbus, Nebraska. Higgins was born in Columbus in 1886 where he spent a great majority of his childhood growing up along the sand barges of the Loup and Platte Rivers that are not a far distance from the city.
