 I can get behind this request.

 The front page is largely modeled after the Plugin and Theme Directories
 (more notable the former). But unlike those directories, just about anyone
 can readily contribute photos so making it clear they can do so more
 prominently seems reasonable and appropriate.

 That said, how and where? The Theme Directory does include an above-the-
 fold link to "Commercial Themes" but it's in a rather unsightly nav bar.

 The easiest and cleanest might be to change the page subheading from:

 > Enhance your content! Browse 2,416 free photos.

 to something like:

 > Enhance your content! Browse 2,416 free photos or
 [https://wordpress.org/photos/ contribute some of yours].

 (I'm certainly open to better phrasing.)

 Anything more and we'll probably want more design input. We don't want too
 much prominence on the "contribute your photos" link as it's a secondary
 action to viewing/finding photos.
