Jack Layton 1950-2011
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).

Layton was a visionary politician who campaigned for progress and social democracy. In his career, he spearheaded campaigns to stop violence against women, provide a living wage, promote environmental sustainability, raise funding for HIV/Aids, and grant asylum to conscientious objectors to the Iraq war.
He is shown here at the victory rally in Toronto after the historic 2011 federal election in which Layton's NDP vaulted itself into official opposition for the fist time.
Just months later, he died of Cancer.
His final words were released after his death:
"My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world."
