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).

Ciao, Grazie â€“
The Beach Hawkers
They work at the most beautiful beaches in the world, during the most beautiful time of the year, but are often only considered as annoying.
They offer fake watches, bags, jewelry, sunglasses but also a lot of bric-a-brac to tourists. To most of us they are often only â€žfacelessâ€œ troublemakers.
Only few holiday-makers are concerned about the fate of these people during their vacation. Packed with their goods in scorching heat, the beach hawkers are wandering about the beach up to ten hours per day. A successful sellerâ€™s average dayâ€™s wage is about 10 â€“ 20 Euros only.
Although offered as such, most of the goods do not come from Africa or India, but directly from Italy.
Andy KÃ¤mpf has got to know these people on the Italian coast and photographed them.
In honest and intimate portraits he shows people from Morocco, Bangladesh, Cameroon and Senegal.
From cheerful to friendly, proud, or melancholic, but also full of hope for a better future, we get to see the full range of portraits.
