"Wait a minute Mr. postman!" - Tamil nadu post office, India
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).

A postcard I made from my empty, used Vicco toothpaste tube:
split open, flattened, cleaned, permanent marker written, decorated with colorful stamps, laminated and... sent... or so I thought ! But with unregistered postcards or letters Indian post is a gamble. This item was most likely stolen by a postmen on the way. It never reached it's destination, like other items I had mailed before.
The face-to-face service in the branch is always welcoming and warm (see my story: http://jpgmag.com/stories/17586 ) but once the sender is out of the picture and the postcard changes hands, sacks and carriers - liability drops to non-existant
Vicco toothpaste handmade postcard - stolen by India mail - recycled made in Tamil Nadu from my reused leftover tube - sent by Indian post office to Moshe friend in Los Angeles USA - corruption of government postmen
