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).

Iceland is definitely a paradise for photographers. With a population of about 320,000 souls and a total area of 103,000 square kilometers, nature is totally preserved and still as wild as it was at the end of ice age. Geologically very active with many active volcanoes, the Icelandic landscape was carved over time by the lava that flowed from many volcanic eruptions. Hence, due to its proximity with Greenland and the Arctic Circle, glaciers and icebergs can be observed throughout the year. All these elements, along with the midnight sun during the summer, make Iceland a surreal place where photographers from all around the world gather, hoping to take epic shotsâ€¦
The coastal landscapes of Iceland are epic too! Black volcanic sand beaches contrast with high cliffs and glaciers and the shore constantly changes from one place to another. This picture was taken at the tip of Snaefellsnes Peninsula that is situated in Western Iceland.
