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 Col du Galibier is one of the most famous cols of the French Alps, mostly thanks to the Tour de France that already passed there 59 times. It is located at 2,642 meters between the departments of Savoy and Southern High-Alps.
The road was built between 1880 and 1891. It is only open during the summer. Indeed, during the cold season, it is invariably covered with tons of snow and ice, making it just impossible to follow.
This shot was taken on April 12th, 2013, one of the first days of the spring there in the Alps. The snow was quickly melting and I could hear the sound of many avalanches in the distance.
