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).

She is only sixteen
Isn’t it too early for her?
Isn’t it too heavy for her?
Monika a 16 years old mother and her 4 Months old daughter Asamoni came to icddr,b as Asamoni was suffering from breathing problem. At this age where most of her friends are enjoying their school and playing with their friends, Monika is taking care of her 4 months old daughter. Early marriage and early pregnancy is still a main reason of mother and child death in Bangladesh. Her husband is a Bus driver and they live in Mirpur.
I took this while I was doing an assignment for the annual report of icddr,b. At that point both mother and the child were doing better. Today, I was passing the corridor of my office and without any intention I just look through the door of our ICU. I saw Asamoni and her mother Monika, is still in icddr,b. I have spoken with her and found that Asamoni is very sick now, and her condition was very severe this morning. Doctors are trying their best. Asamoni was a premature baby and thus this type of severe complication is still persisting.
Each year, icddr,b treats more than 110,000 patients, 35,000 of whom would die without treatment. ICDDR,B depends on donations to continue this lifesaving treatment. We depend on you to be able to continue saving lives.
Every dollar, pound, euro and taka makes a difference to the health of poor people in Bangladesh and around the world. Whatever you decide to donate, all contributions to ICDDR,B are significant.
It's your generosity that enables us to create lasting change in the lives of thousands of people around the world through our long-term development and research work carried out from our Centre here in Bangladesh.
icddr,b greatly appreciate your support. Help icddr,b in saving millions of lives.
In the icddr,b photo essay.
