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).

This is Bernd Rauschenbach, literary scholar, author, performer and custodian of Arno Schmidt's estate, who was one of the pivotal writers in recent German literary history. Rauschenbach is shown here reading from Arno Schmidt's "Kaff, auch Mare Crisium", a novel which hasn't lost any of its appeal since its 1960 publication. The reading took place on Oktober 23, 2011 at the Zimmertheater in Tübingen (Germany), a lovely venue in Tübingen's old town, just a stone's throw away from the place where Friedrich Hölderlinonce lived. Rauschenbach is a master at reading Arno Schmidt's complicated, dark and deeply funny works. Thoroughly entertaining and thought provoking at once Rauschenbach's appearances are a far cry from the run of the mill literature readings so common these days. German speaking enthusiasts of literature shouldn't miss them, as their English speaking counterparts shouldn't miss Arno Schmidt's works - "Kaff, auch Mare Crisium" for instance is available as B/Moondocks.
Tübingen's Zimmertheater is always worth a visit: 1| 2
