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).

I first started my slow crawl westward circa 2001 (which is also the name of my favorite film, about a different kind of journey… maybe). First Memphis, Tennessee, then Tucson, Arizona, then called to Venice, California to be with the woman I married. Well, the marriage is now unfortunately ending, and though I shot this scene many months before we came to this impasse, it nevertheless seems iconic, an image laden with some painful prescience. Living by the beach meant I literally could go no further west without drowning, and now she and I can go no further together without risking our sanity. This separation and pending divorce means the End of Venice for me, insofar as I’ve moved out of her beachside apartment and am now living with friends in Culver City. Now when I go to the beach I won’t take it for granted, as I came to do while living a block away from it. Hopefully I’ll never again take love for granted, either.
