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).

Kargil War Memorial built in Pondicherry on the Beach Road by the Indian army. In Remembrance of a war which was far from conventional or even a widely spread one, but yet claimed the lives of 527 of Indiaâ€™s bravest soldiers. Who fought the enemy in a terrain and altitude, where normal people have difficulty walking from one place to another, carrying just their own weight.
The Kargil War, also known as the Kargil conflict, was an armed conflict between India and Pakistan that took place between May and July 1999 in the Kargil district of Kashmir and elsewhere along the Line of Control. The cause of the war was the infiltration of Pakistani soldiers and Kashmiri militants intopositions on the Indian side of the Line of Control, which serves as the de facto border between the two states. During the initial stages of the war, Pakistan blamed the fighting entirely on independent Kashmiri insurgents, but documents left behind by casualties and later statements by Pakistanâ€™s Prime Minister and Chief of Army Staff showed involvement of Pakistani paramilitary forces, led by General. The Indian Army, later on supported by the Indian Air Force, recaptured a majority of the positions on the Indian side of the Line of Control infiltrated by the Pakistani troops and militants. With international diplomatic support, the Pakistani forces were forced to withdraw from Indian positions
