Peter and the Bible
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.

Every Sunday morning at the Triumph International School, my host father (pictured here), the founder of the school, father of two and guardian of ten, reads passages from the bible hoping to instill strong morals and values in the young, impressionable children of the school. The congregation is made up predominantly of children and for the majority of the service they are singing beautiful melodic songs in English and Twi and dancing to the beat of a three-piece drum (sometimes accompanied by tambourines). With little exposure to pop music from the West, Gospel is the most popular genre in Ghana and it is remarkable how different the culture is as a result of this, particularly in that of the youth culture. While American children are being exposed to a materialistic and heavily sexualized media driven society, Ghanaian children are happy and satisfied with their much simpler and wholesome lifestyle, only concerned with importantly things like family, religion, education and health.
