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).

After having gone through miles of red tape I finally got permission to shoot the Cairo Circus during practice hours. I was with a writer at the time and as we stood on the circus grounds negotiating our access to certain areas we can shoot in with circus officials. We both looked over to see a handful of workers carrying freshly skinned goats apparently heading to the lions cages for feeding time. This image stopped both of us in our tracks as it was arresting to say the least and we tried pushing along the talks so that we could photograph this amazing sight but as our photo restriction deal was still too precarious at that time and they obviously did not want us there in the first place we had to bite our tongues so as to not jeopardize our whole assignment. Alas we did not get the lion feeding shots but we did get other great shots of the animals and trainers at the circus including this one.
