Matchbox collection - from Tamil Nadu & Kerala
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).

My friend Udai, back in Konkan Maharashtran town is a light blue kiosk owner that stands alone in front of his family home and a minute away from the beach.
He's a collector in heart and has some unique types he came up with... for example: 10 Rupee bills with a serial number that matches birthdays of famous people.
When I was about to leave for south India, 8 months ago, he asked me to bring back some matchboxes for his other collection.
Myself having a background in picking those up from the ground, I had no problem to change the 'addresee'.
So upon returning here, a month ago, I presented him with many species he had never seen. Worth seeing the smile on his face while checking them out in depth
