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.

â€œI am a fine, classy travesty; I think that is what many people see in me; we are demonized, always accused of being involved in drugs and prostitution, but I have kept above all of thatâ€, says Ysak Mantu, travesty actor and performance artist known in the gay night life as Dana Karvelas. He defines the world of travestyâ€™s as â€œa something apart, underground, and this way of being in between the sexes brings work, personal and other deficiencies. Sometimes itâ€™s like being in limbo, but you are happy. In my case I have insisted in being an artist, regardless of the financial difficulties it implies.â€ Apart from his ample experience in films and advertisement, he recently debuted with a character of his creation, Dana International, an Israeli singer unlike the clichÃ© travesty who only imitates certain artists. Regardless of all the problems, Ysak/Dana affirms with conviction: â€œIn this road you might miss some things you might have lived otherwise, but I also know we have things others donâ€™t.â€ This studio posed portrait, which is reminiscent of the work of German expressionist Otto Dix (1891-1969) between the two World Wars, emphasizes the delicate androgyny of Ysak Mantu, actor and transvestite performer known in the Gay nightclub life of Mexico City as Dana Karvelas.
