Rais tailor with my Indian matchbox collection stitched into a postcard | Himachal Pradesh, India
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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

The memory of that first Paragon banner pant, made by Ajai tailor in a small town in Maharshtra was a vivid, cross cultural experience that would drive me to many more attempts to bring to life future ideas.
Here, 6 months later, in northern Himachal Pradesh Rais tailor with my Indian matchbox collection he stitched into a postcard.
We also became good friends along with Ganesh, his boss and brother Ram. The story of our time cooking Dal Bat (the national rajasthani dish) and Israeli cousin after hours back in their room is here: http://jpgmag.com/stories/14784
A couple of months later Rais invited me along for his ride back to his native Rajasthani village and spent an unforgettable time at his his family homes there.
