The Shank End of the Party
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 attended a fun New Year's Eve party and, naturally, my camera attended, too. I had a great time snapping photos throughout the night. I was delighted to find that many of the photos I took that evening worked as well as I had envisioned them.â€‹ However, a few photos worked even better than I had hoped. This was one of those photos.
I loved the colors, patterns, and textures going on in her dress, the crochet throw, the flowers in her hair, and the hat. I knew I had to capture them all somehow because it all worked so well. When I was walking back into the living room as the party was winding down, I saw the scene and knew I had a chance to get what I wanted the way I wanted it. And in the end, I was even happier than I had thought.
