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).

Pictured is an installation at the site of The Aboriginal Tent Embassy which has become part of Canberra's physical and political landscape. It has intermittently existed on the lawns of Old Parliament House since Australia Day 1972 and permanently since Australia Day 1992.The embassy began as a response to the then Coalition Government's refusal to recognise land rights.Governments have tried, with varying success, to remove the embassy by use of police force, invoking territory ordinances and planning guidelines, direct negotiation and simply turning a blind eye with the hope that the embassy would fizzle out. In light of the recent apology and policy changes from Prime Minister Rudd perhaps conditions will finally begin to improve for Australia's most disadvantaged group.
Certainly without the constant visual reminder of Aboriginal presence in the ACT such moves may have taken a lot longer to eventuate.
