Something to Shoot
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).

Fort Moultrie, Sullivan's Island, SC
The first Fort Moultrie was built in 1776 and turned back the British attempt to take Charleston, SC. during the Battle of Sullivan's Island. The fort was made from palmetto logs and inspired the design of the state flag.
A much improved Fort Moultrie was taken over by Confederates in 1861 when Major Anderson moved his garrison to Fort Sumter. Fort Moultrie remained in Confederate hands until February 1865 when Charleston, SC was evacuated.
The fort was once again modernized in the 1870s and continued as part of our seacoast defense until 1947. The Department of Defense turned the fort over to the National Park Service in 1960. It is the only fort in the National Park system where the entire history of the American seacoast defense (1776â€“1947) can be traced.
