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).

I'm a member of the Amnesty International club at my school. We held a human rights conference in May. Many inspiring speakers came to talk about their organizations. Carl Wilkens was the keynote speaker. He was the last remaining American civilian during the Rwandan genocide. The event was very well-attended and our club is looking forward to next year's conference!
I was fortunate enough to assist Annie Fukushima, founder of Students & Artists Fighting to End Human Slavery. She is currently studying Ethnic Studies & Designated Emphasis in Women, Gender, & Sexuality at UC Berkeley.
For her session, she started off with information about what human trafficking is, where it is, and the different ways to help. Then she had us break into groups and paint on canvasses. For this painting, my group chose a word that we felt represented human trafficking: trapped. Our heart was chained down with the pain of human trafficking.
