Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates

This star, with one point broken, symbolizes the featured candidates on Wikipedia.

Featured pictures are images that add significantly to articles, either by illustrating article content particularly well, or being eye-catching to the point where users will want to read its accompanying article. Taking the adage that "a picture is worth a thousand words", the images featured on Wikipedia:Featured pictures should illustrate a Wikipedia article in such a way as to add significantly to that article, according to the featured picture criteria.

Promoting an image

If you believe an image should be featured, create a subpage (use the "For Nominations" field, below) and add the subpage to the current nominations section.

For promotion, if an image is listed here for ten days with five or more reviewers in support and the consensus is in its favor, it can be added to the Wikipedia:Featured pictures list. Consensus is generally regarded to be a two-third majority in support, including the nominator and/or creator of the image; however, anonymous votes are generally disregarded, as are opinions of sockpuppets.

All users may comment. However, only those who have been on Wikipedia for 25 days and with at least 100 edits will be included in the numerical count. If necessary, decisions about close candidacies will be made on a case-by-case basis. Nominations started in December are given three extra days, due to the holidays slowing down activity here.

The archive contains all opinions and comments collected for candidate nominations and their nomination results.

If you nominate an image here, please consider also uploading and nominating it at Commons to help ensure that the pictures can be used not just in the English Wikipedia but on all other Wikimedia projects as well.

Delisting an image

A featured picture can be nominated for delisting if you feel it no longer lives up to featured picture standards. You may also request a featured picture be replaced with a superior image. Create a subpage (use the "For Delists" field, below) and add the subpage to the current nominations section.

Please leave a note on the talk page of the original FPC nominator (and creator/uploader, if appropriate) to let them know the delisting is being debated. The user may be able to address the issues and avoid the delisting of the picture.

For delisting, if an image is listed here for ten days with five or more reviewers supporting a delist or replace, and the consensus is in its favor, it will be delisted from Wikipedia:Featured pictures. Consensus is generally regarded to be a two-third majority in support, including the nominator. Note that anonymous votes are generally disregarded, as are opinions of sockpuppets. However, images are sometimes delisted despite having fewer than five in support of their removal, and there is currently no consensus on how best to handle delist closures, except that:.If the image to be delisted is not used in any articles by the time of closure, it must be delisted. If it is added to articles during the nomination, at least one week's stability is required for the nomination to be closed as "Kept". The nomination may be suspended if a week hasn't yet passed to give the rescue a chance.

Outside of the nominator, all voters are expected to have been on Wikipedia for 25 days and to have made a minimum of 100 edits. If necessary, decisions about close candidacies will be made on a case-by-case basis. As with regular nominations, delist nominations are given three extra days to run if started in December.

  • Note that delisting an image does not mean deleting it. Delisting from Featured pictures in no way affects the image's status in its article(s).
Step 1:
Evaluate

Evaluate the merit of a nomination against the featured picture criteria. Most users reference terms from this page when evaluating nominations.

Step 2:
Create a subpage
For Nominations

To create a subpage of Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates for your nomination, add a title for the image you want to nominate in the field below (e.g., Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Labrador Retriever) and click the "Create new nomination" button.


For Delists (or Delist & Replace)

To create a subpage for your delist, add a title for the image you want to delist/replace in the field below and click the "Create new delist nomination" button.


Step 3:
Transclude and link

Transclude the newly created subpage to the Featured picture candidate list (Transclude the newly created subpage to the Featured picture candidate list (direct link).

How to comment for Candidate Images

  • Write Support, if you approve of the picture. A reason is optional.
  • Write Oppose, followed by your reasoning, if you disapprove of the picture. All objections should be accompanied by a specific rationale that, if addressed, would make you support the image. If your concern is one that can only be addressed by the creator, and if they haven't nominated or commented on the image, and if they are a Wikipedian, you should notify them directly.
  • You can weak support or weak oppose instead, so that your opinion will be weighed as half of a "full" opinion.
    • To change your opinion, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.
  • If you think a nominated image obviously fails the featured picture criteria, write Speedy close followed by your reasons. Nominations may be closed early if this is the case.
Recommendations added early in the process may be disregarded if they do not address concerns and/or improvements that arise later in the debate. Reviewers are advised to monitor the progress of a nomination and update their votes accordingly.
Prior to giving an opinion, the image should be assessed on its quality as displayed at full size (high-resolution) in an image editing program. Please note that the images are only displayed at thumbnail size on this page. The thumbnail links to the image description page which, in turn, links to the high-resolution version.

How to comment for Delist Images

  • Write Keep, followed by your reasons for keeping the picture.
  • Write Delist, followed by your reasons for delisting the picture.
  • Write Delist and Replace if you believe the image should be replaced by a better picture.
  • You can weak keep, weak delist or weak delist and replace instead, so that your opinion will be weighed as half of a "full" opinion.
    • To change your opinion, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.
Please remember to be civil, not to bite the newbies and to comment on the image, not the person.

You may find the glossary useful when you encounter acronyms or jargon in other voters' comments. You can also link to it by using {{FPCgloss}}.

Editing candidates

If you feel you could improve a candidate by image editing, please feel free to do so, but do not overwrite or remove the original. Instead, upload your edit with a different file name (e.g., add "edit" to the file name), and display it below the original nomination. Edits should be appropriately captioned in sequential order (e.g., Edit 1, Edit 2, etc), and describe the modifications that have been applied.

Is my monitor adjusted correctly?

Gray contrast test image.svg
In a discussion about the brightness of an image, it is necessary to know if the computer display is properly adjusted. Displays differ greatly in their ability to show shadow detail. There are four dark grey circles in the adjacent image. If you can discern three (or even four) of the circles, your monitor can display shadow detail correctly. If you see fewer than three circles, you may need to adjust the monitor and/or computer display settings. Some displays cannot be adjusted for ideal shadow detail. Please take this into account when voting.
Highlight test image.svg
Displays also differ greatly in their ability to show highlight detail. There are light grey circles in the adjacent image. If you can discern three (or even four) of the circles, your monitor can display highlight detail correctly. If you see fewer than three circles, you may need to adjust the monitor and/or computer display settings (probably reduce the contrast setting). Some displays cannot be adjusted for ideal highlight detail. Please take this into account when voting.
Colortest.png
On a gamma-adjusted display, the four circles in the color image blend into the background when seen from a few feet (roughly 75–150 cm) away. If they do not, you could adjust the gamma setting (found in the computer's settings, not on the display), until they do. This may be very difficult to attain, and a slight error is not detrimental. Uncorrected PC displays usually show the circles darker than the background.
Note that on most consumer LCD displays (laptop or flat screen), viewing angle strongly affects these images. Correct adjustment on one part of the screen might be incorrect on another part for a stationary head position. Click on the images for more technical information. If possible, calibration with a hardware monitor calibrator is recommended.

Reason
Cleaning up some stuff in the Nadar article. There's a few options to restore from for this image, but this one seemed to have the best combination of detail, and lack of missing parts. The damage didn't require any massive reconstruction work, letting this be more accurate and less replaceable.

Strong oppose until clarification is forthcoming. MER-C 16:34, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
    • About copyright please see photographer's description; About corresponding article I have to say the Persian Wikipedia has strict policy about musicians (Bahram Nouraei is one of the most famous Persian rappers, but I've been trying for a long time to make his article on the Persian Wikipedia!); In addition as I said Iran bans women singers and most of the sources can't write about women singers! --Maometto97 (talk) 20:38, 18 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Support The BBC and Tehran Magazine sources probably push her above WP:GNG, and the deletion discussion has been closed as kept, after the uploader gave a good explanation of their appearance elsewhere. I'm AGFing on the Persian-language sources, and the article sourcing is, indeed, crap, but I think we need to seperate article reviews from FPC reviews to SOME extent.

Georges Ernest Boulanger

Voting period ends on 27 Oct 2019 at 20:52:53 (UTC)

Original – French General Georges Ernest Boulanger, whose attempts to bring back monarchism and conservatism to France created a crisis in the republic.
Reason
I think it's a fine image; I mean, it's by Nadar, and the old image was rather degraded and lacked a source, which is always a bad thing. I like it. Nice composition. I mean, he's probably not that good of person: He's part of a failed proto-fascist takeover of France, but I'm the editor of the featured pictures section of the Bugle, and I'm not sure we've had a single MILHIST FP yet this month. Eep. [ETA: Well, we have that WASP documentary, but still...]

Reason

OriginalElizabeth Glendower Evans, suffragette, social reformer, and, from 1920 to her death in 1937, national director of the American Civil Liberties Union.
Alt 1 - Cropped.
Reason
This is a really nicely framed photograph. Admittedly, she's looking right, and Wikipedia preference would be looking left, but otherwise, it's excellent, and, honestly, it can always be left-aligned in uses outwith her main article. High-resolution, detailed, and well-shot.

Reason
We're actually surprisingly weak on Canadians, because the Canadian archives tend to be pretty tightly locked. Flora MacDonald Denison was one of the big Canadian suffragettes, and I quite like this image of her, even if removing the writing on it took hours. If I could convince myself it was definitely her signature, I might've kept it, as it is, though...

Fred Rogers testifies

Voting period ends on 26 Oct 2019 at 05:25:00 (UTC)

OriginalFred Rogers, the host of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, testifies before the Senate Subcommittee on Communications, chaired by John Pastore, on 1 May 1969.
Reason
Mister Rogers' Neighborhood is a major cultural artifact but unfortunately for us it will remain under copyright for another 40+ years. Fred Rogers had a very distinct manner of speech that is difficult to truly understand unless you see and hear it. This video serves to demonstrate that very well. It also offers many encyclopedic details including explaining how his public broadcast show was funded. To boot, Rogers recites the lyrics to one of his songs, lays out in a few sentence his point of view on childhood psychological development, mental health, and how he incorporates that into his programming. Rogers was a great man, ahead of his time, and this video perfectly encapsulates his work. Watch it to the end for a happy ending.

Édouard Manet

Original – French painter Édouard Manet, who has failed to have a luncheon on the grass with a naked woman this time... or has he? That look in his eyes could argue otherwise.
Reason
I really like this image, and the image is scanned from an large print, which means it's quite big, although, I'm not so sure that, given film grain size, there's much that would have been lost if it was a little smaller. Still, who cares? It looks great quite large, just maybe it doesn't reward zooming in to 100% as much as some images do, and it's pre-1870 according to Gallica, which does put a limit on what we can expect in the fine detail.

Delist and Replace: Jules Verne

Voting period ends on 23 Oct 2019 at 19:06:02 (UTC)

Reason
I... was honestly surprised to see this was an FP. The restoration of the current FP is competent enough, but the original is a very, very poor reproduction, and is very overexposed. The jacket on the current FP almost looks drawn, due to the level of detail in it. The Carjat is, I think, much better. I haven't done any replacement in articles, because I felt I should let the votes come in first.

    • @Geoffroi and Sca:, are we going to require that Édouard Manet or Elizabeth Glendower Evans have something in the photograph that demonstrates their notability? Why are you making up a special requirement for astronauts and cosmonauts? This is a good portrait and intended to identify the subject of the article (hence the EV). He was made Hero of the Soviet Union twice, the second time for his work on Apollo–Soyuz mission. What more than a mission pin and Soviet Union flag do you want? --- Coffeeandcrumbs 23:27, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

  • @ Coffeeandcrumbs: I can't make any new requirement, I can only cast my one vote. This portrait is set up by a pro photog, and dozens of people could've been photographed in quick succession. There's no wow factor. The photo of Miss Evans has a striking and strong pose and facial expression. The painting of a painter is OK, though I would also like to see an FP of Manet at his easel.

Pattie Ruffner Jacobs

Voting period ends on 22 Oct 2019 at 23:11:23 (UTC)

OriginalPattie Ruffner Jacobs, who fought against child labor, convict leasing, and prostitution, and decided political power for women was necessary to push through her progressive reforms.
Reason
Another notable suffragette. Visually, her pleasant face and the layered, complex clothing were really interesting, even if I hated the clothing's complexity while restoring it. I've cropped a little on the top (this era of photos tended to leave a lot of headroom, I believe in part to give space to write notes on), but otherwise, it's the maximum available size. I could see cropping a bit on the right side. Article makes an extremely strong case for notability, including governmental appointments.

Alice Locke Park

Voting period ends on 21 Oct 2019 at 21:18:45 (UTC)

OriginalAlice Locke Park, c. 1910-1920
Reason
Again, still going through the National Woman's Party records. Alice Park was one of the most important California suffragettes, as well as doing a lot of other good, for instance, she brought Arbor Day to California, and made sure that Californian women had a right to guardianship of their minor children. Article lacked any images of her before this, and I don't imagine anyone is going to try to argue that no image is better than a rather good image. She's roughly in her 50s in this photograph, she lived to 100, and did a lot of notable things around that period of time, so I think the timescale works out well for notability.

Why don't we want the higher resolution to be featured? --- Coffeeandcrumbs 21:20, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
@ Coffeeandcrumbs: This one is the original one and the higher res one was upscaled with GIMP. I dont' know clearly what the policy is when it comes to upscaled images so I put the original. Swapping it out would be pretty easy. Taewangkorea (talk) 22:01, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

Ada Flatman

Voting period ends on 21 Oct 2019 at 00:56:15 (UTC)

OriginalAda Flatman, one of the leading British suffragettes, who, when the suffrage organisations of Britain agreed to stop work until after WWI, decided to move to the U.S. and joined Alice Paul to become the business manager of The Suffragist.
Reason
The archives of the National Woman's Party are a treasure trove of material, and, with the 100th anniversary of U.S. suffrage coming up, and the 100th anniversary of U.K. suffrage just past, I want to do what I can (and, yeah, I say that a lot. It's because I can do a lot). This image of Ada Flatman is lovely, and, given the size of the photo, it's about a 500dpi scan. I don't think we're missing any detail. I've added a little more headroom, and removed an egregious stick-on Harris & Ewing label, which was just translucent enough that I could see the tiny bit of dress covered by it through it, so no real detail was lost.
