French Photojournalist Remi Ochlik, RIP
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).

The French photographer Remi Ochlik was killed today in Syria, along with the war reporter Marie Colvin. He had just won first prize in the general news category of the World Press Photo competition for 2012. I hadnt met Remi even though he was in Cairo, and Tahrir Square during the revolution that I covered there, although I had been introduced to Chris Hondros standing in Tahrir Square, before he was killed, along with Tim Heatherington, by an RPG covering the Libyan revolution. My tribute image is one from the Egyptian revolution, these young protesters with their faces painted in the colors of the Egyptian flag, I think Remi would approve considering what he has given for his craft, perhaps too much.
