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.

One of the main objectives of the political activism of Samantha Flores, who completed her “transition” in the early 1960’s, has been to seek care for the elder in an inclusive LGBT community and just society in Mexico City. She has also been the driving force behind the project to create a nursing home for LGBT people with AIDS where they can age with dignity and respect. The life of Samantha, whose name was inspired in a film character, exemplifies the history of contemporary transsexuality in Mexico. It is an example of the struggle for self-identity in a hostile and macho society. When she was still Vicente, she dreamt of being a concert performer and ballet dancer, but the paternal authority did not allow her to follow her dreams. However, from then on she would write the story of her own life, defying conventionalisms and the transphobic police repression of her times and today fighting for causes such the dignification of the transsexual elderly. Her story is still to become a wonderful autobiographical book.
