The Pigs' Pre-Slaughter Conference
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).

For the story: On the Death of Pigs.
Seeing a need for more animal rescue than we, ourselves, alone, can do with our private rescue, my husband and I are branching out into our neighborhood here in the gorgeous Oklahoma countryside. We are trying to find neighbors to join us in giving certain special animals, destined to slaughter, a forever home in their pastures.
We call oursevles Rancho San Patricio Private Animal Rescue. We are self-funded, and we only ask for people who can likewise afford to help, to take an animal faced with death, and give him a home.
This is our own neighbrhood democray - an animal rescue effort, at its very basic and grass roots level. This photo and the others in this group should clearly show WHY we do this. If not, I am a poor photographer, afterall, and these images are worthless.
These pigs are headed to slaughter, and these photos are their portraits on their last day on earth. May the photos honor, may the pigs go peacefully, intelligence and everything.
