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).

As my friend Julie and I headed up this street towards the magnificent 16th century garden within the Italian village of Bagnaia, this sweet little Italian girl in a bright red dress and shaking a set of keys greeted us with a big smile. The young woman with her was obviously her mother and I’m almost certain one of the two elderly women lavishing her with attention was her grandmother. All three women appeared most pleased that we wanted to photograph this endearing child, but when we pointed our cameras at her, she giggled and held the keys in front of her face. She kept doing that. Plus she followed us with her mother close behind, as we slowly made our way up the street, stopping periodically with the hope of capturing her without the keys masking her face. Thankfully, as wee ones are apt to do, she at times got distracted to where we could. For me her expression in this shot not only reflects her priceless wonderment of a beautiful new day, but ours over this new keepsake moment.
