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).

From the series Beyond Gender:
â€œI am a beautiful, very feminine woman, a lovely human being that should have emerged long agoâ€¦â€ During the making of this photographic project, self-defined Tannya AlizÃ©e MartÃn del Campo had sold her computer and used up all her savings in order to obtain her reassigned birth certificate and continue with her profession as an actress. This might be the decisive moment of her life, after a long and painful struggle to be accepted by her family as she has chosen to be. Born in Aguascalientes, a State in the center of Mexico, at 19 she left for Mexico City to study in one of the most important acting schools, which was a fundamental step in reaffirming her transsexual condition. But as she was opening this door, her family and social environment were closing others for her. This is why, apart from solving her individual legal condition, Tannya AlizÃ©e decided to fight for the necessary legal modifications to take place in her state so that transgender women like her have the right to change their identity if they want to do so, and to tell their families, as she has: â€œI havenâ€™t changed, my essence is the same, only the exterior changed. See me as a human being, as I am, as we all are.â€
