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 took this photo of my grand baby when he was two. He loved to hide and then surprise us and got very disappointed if we weren't paying attention or made "isn't that cute?" noises. Here he'd hidden in a pool bathroom and we were frantic to find him (because we hadn't been paying him enough attention). We shouted, called for help, and still no Noah. Just as my daughter and I were on the edge of complete panic, he jumped out from behind the wall laughing. We screamed at him and my daughter gave him a finger-wagging angry talking to which sent him into tears. He retreated into the bathroom again. As I waited for them I set my camera to catch him coming out, offering a big hug if he gave me a smile. This is the best he could do, but to me it is a precious moment. I then crumbled into tears and he came over to comfort me!
