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).

Nicole Gesmondi is much more than just a favorite photographer of mine. I have saved the most important dedication for last (and timed it perfectly for Valentine's Day). When we met, I was a wanna-be photographer who had some cool photos only because I have seen every cool location in the U.S. Now because of her, I know much more about color and composition and thanks to her I have a plastic film camera obsession.
I actually enjoy being her assistant at weddings, helping her develop her website, and growing her photography business. She is a lot of fun to work with and go shooting with. She also doesn't mind that I have never bought her any jewelry, prefering to get her cameras, lenses, flashes, or film for aniversaries, birthdays, Christmas, and even Valentine's Day.
Abandoned bumper cars at the Enchanted Forest, a former kiddie amusement park in Hope Valley, RI. Nicolehas a much cooler shot of these on her website from one of our first dates.
Created using my Holga 120CFN with Fuji NPZ 800 film. Negative scanned with my Epson v700 Perfection scanner. No digital manipulation used!
