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.

How much is an entry worth? I entered a photo in JPG's "Beginnings" for the $2 fee, I entered a photo in JPG's "May You Live In Interesting Times" for the $1 fee, and I entered a photo in JPG's "Where in the World" for the $5 fee, but I didn't bother entering this pic in JPG's "Best of" for the $10 fee because I just can't see wasting $10s on one of my pics for "Best of". This pic isn't my best ever, or my best of the year, or my best of that day...it was however the best one that I took through the salt spray on the rear window of the car as the wind howled outside.
