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).

This Young Smoker - a member of the Black Lahu tribe in Northern Thailand - must have been not more than five or six years old.
He has four cigarettes on him, the fourth being tucked above his other ear.
And the interesting additional information is that he wanted to beat me after I took his photos. He had asked me for money, but because I did not have small change left, I turned him down.
He then threw stones at me and tried to beat me with a stick!
I thought to myself, this kid would probably grow up to become a drug warlord at the Golden Triangle along the Thai / Burmese border.
He would be old enough for that role today as this image was shot in 1983.
Of all my precious slides, this was in the worst condition - covered with blue blotches all over. See Smoking kid (before)
When my friend examined the slide under bright lights, he saw a colony of tiny multi-legged creatures, complete with eggs, carcasses and faeces!
Larry, took hours to help me restore this slide. And he liked it so much that he spent another two days to produce a painted version of it.
I am not sure if this magazine accepts photo paintings, but you can view it on my website, www.art-photograph-gallery.com
I proudly put it on the cover page :-)
