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.

From the series Beyond Gender.
Daniela and Tania, a lesbian couple of transsexual women (MtFs), are pivotal political activists in the LGBT rights in Mexico City. The couple has become a role model for the Transgender and Transsexual communities. Tania was the first transsexual to change her birth certificate and legal documents in Mexico. On October 10, 2008, the Legislative Assembly of the Federal District passed an important gender identity reform to allow TG and TS people to change their name and gender designation in a new birth certificate to overcome discrimination that this minority suffers in virtually every aspect of social life. This procedure reduced the discrimination she suffers by 80%. However, the National University of Mexico must still modify her academic title because she is unable to work in her profession as a journalist. In terms of their condition as a transsexual lesbian couple, they both affirm that the problem is people who donÂ´t understand that gender identity has nothing to do with the so called sexual preference or that one falls in love with a person, not a gender. Daniela and Tania militate in Dignidad Trans, a civil organization that fights for equality for the trans community in Mexico.
