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).

Through my job, I spend a fair amount of time in museums and historic sites, working on exhibition projects. Any photographs taken in these locations are usually done for reference and documentation. Travel and schedule often limit opportunities to “just take photographs”. The Mansion House, built by the Oneida Community in 1861, has a fascinating history and, with it’s chapel, library and gardens, just oozes atmosphere. It’s relatively close to home, and the director has kindly allowed me to take photographs on weekend afternoons, just for the fun of it.
These 19th century exhibition cabinets, just outside the Big Hall, are filled with objects collected by Community members, from around the world. Many of the artifacts are accompanied by hand written labels which appear as if they’ve been untouched for decades. It’s an interesting look at how a collection such as this was interpreted and presented.
