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).

Mediacite is a shopping and entertainment center with some exciting green features in the center of Liège, Belgium. Located nearby the new train station, Gare des Guillemins by Santiago Calatrava, Mediacite will help rehabilitate the central city economically and culturally. With sweeping lines, advanced materials and environmentally aware design and construction, the new shopping center is an exciting new urban infill project and will surely be a big hit.
Centrally located and easily accessible by foot, bike and over 1,000 buses that go by each day, the shopping center is ideally situated in order to reduce carbon emissions of visiting shoppers. The entire shopping center is covered in ETFE with lots of skylights on the roof to bring in natural light. Air quality will be properly maintained through the use of air treatment stations on the roof, and some of the roof (undisclosed amount) has been planted.
Rainwater will be collected from the roof and stored and waste material will be properly sorted. Energy efficiency was also a top priority, and the project includes many energy efficient strategies like allowing the shops limited access to electricity to reduce their consumption, high-efficiency condensing gas boilers and a semi-reflective transparent roofing material that reduces heat gain.
The interior will host ample retail space, a post office, an ice rink, movie theater, bowling alley, as well as restaurants and office space. Designed by London-based Israeli architect, Ron Arad, with the help of Chapman Taylor and RTKL, the Mediacite has earned environmental accreditation under BREEAM.
