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.

Durga Puja is celebrated all overIndia but has its unique identity in the eastern parts ofIndia, especially in the sattes ofWest Bengal and Orissa. People from far and wide visit these states just to get a glimpse of colorfully adorned Durga idols in various pandals and bask in the spirits of the Puja. With shimmering lights, special delicacies and cultural festivities, its like a big party, day and night. Every region has its special way of celebrating the puja and each stands out in its uniqueness.
In this race to excel and make an impression, the city of Cuttack has its own way of creating pandals during the durga Puja. The silver city literally lives up to its name and its stunning Chandi Medha(silver Pandals) have become a huge crowd puller over the years. The Millennium City celebrates all the festival with much fanfare and devotion but Dussehra is by far the most glamorous. Visitors throng the city to witness the grandeur and glitz associated with the Puja and donâ€™t return disappointed. The glorious silver pandals created with tones of silver and oodles of talent leave people speechless with awe.
