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).

For as long as I can remember, I've been the go-to girl for costumes. When I was 12 and my brother was 8, I ripped up a sheet and turned him into a mummy. The Town Show always had an annual Halloween costume contest. He took 1st that year and won 5, count 'em, 5 silver dollars. It was over about 8 pm and we trick-or-treated on the way home and got mugged by some bullies who stole our bags of candy. Tommy's loot was in his bag. I'm pretty sure you could've heard us wailing a mile away.
Fast forward many years and costumes remained my favorite thing to sew. My kids also won many costume contests as did my grandkids.
My daughter, Amy, and the kids relocated to Denver in 2008 and we were there for Halloween 2009. I was curious about what they'd come up with for costumes with grandma 1300 miles away. I walked in the house, and this is what Matt was wearing. Matt's chef dad came up with this, complete with 'tall hat' and cleaver. I was humbled.
The sun was streaming through the dining room window and I thought, oooooo... shadows.
PS Would some one mind straightening that picture on the wall. It's driving me nuts.
