The Stain (Power of One)
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.

Taken in my home studio in the US, this image symbolizes the recent democratic process in Iraq. This photo depicts that it is always the resolute one per cent that makes the decisive difference in political change. It is this one percent that is beyond the influence of the prevalent political system. The temporary stain on the finger holds many powers and shows the resolve of this group. History has shown that it is the voice of this minority that percolates from the bottom to spearhead and establish social and political change. A western-style liberal-democracy may or may not be the right solution for the region but creating, supporting and sustaining a political environment that'd nurture and empower this minority group would certainly be a big step in the right direction. In the words of anthropologist Margaret Mead, â€œNever doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, itâ€™s the only thing that ever has.â€
