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).

It was the last day of my San Francisco trip and I had been hitting the pavement all afternoon taking pictures. I was exhausted, my feet hurt, my face was sun burnt, and I was about to call it a day and head back to the hotel. That is, until I spotted Joseph on Market Street.
He just had one of those exotic faces that would be burned into my mind forever, and I knew that if I didn't stop him and ask to take his portrait then it would be one of life's little regrets.
I offered him $10 for a few moments of his time, and at first he seemed a little embarrassed by the attention. When I asked Joseph if anyone had ever stopped him on the streets for a picture before, he told me that as a matter of fact he was out with his "baby mama" just the week before and was stopped by a guy working on a photo book. He was paid $10 then, too. With a face like that I think Joseph had better getting attention from us street photogs.
