Those spaces aren't available for money, RMJAZZ, they're driven editorially. iTunes puts up as features and thereabouts music they imagine will make them money, or that they like, or that they want to see surfaced, perhaps because they're part of larger or group-based promotions, etc.

That having been said, TuneCore works pretty closely with the iTunes folks, and several artists who used TuneCore were put up as Featured Artists! More and more all the time. We've found it's almost always the case that the more an artist or group does to promote themselves, the harder they work to get sales and attention, the more they wind up catching iTunes's eye.
