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).

The Aldebaran a 28m fishing-boat was confiscated for fishing illegally in Seychelles waters by the Seychelles Coast Guard. After legal procedures were finalized the owners abandoned the vessel. The vessel was acquired by the Seychelles Tourism Board - to commemorate the SUBIOS Festival of the Sea theme for that year â€œWrecks as Ocean Habitatsâ€, the vessel was sunk after careful consideration at an appropriate location. Elizabeth Fideria of Big Blue Divers had the pleasure of choosing a suitable place for the wreck, she choose a location with heavy sand bottom, some rocks and existing marine life in an area where currents are passing through to provide a healthy amount of nutrients. On July the 11th 2008 the Aldebaran was towed by a Seychelles Port Authority tugboat to her last resting place off the coast of Willie's Bay in the north-west of Mahe. She lays upright in 40m depth and is teeming with marine life â€“ Bat Fish are hovering over the Wreck, Moray Eels by the dozen, Lion Fish in every corner, schooling Jacks, Fusiliers and Sweetlips are found in and around the wreck and often one or more Stingrays are laying in the sand. - Taken from Big Blue Divers, Seychelles.
