Jump to: navigation, search

This is where the Wikinews community selects new featured articles.

Featured articles should, at a minimum:

  • Have pictures (they should make a good visual impression)
  • Be well-written
  • Cover the news event comprehensively

In addition, we should try to choose articles with these features:

  • Good collaboration
  • Quality original material
  • Better coverage than mainstream outlets

Add suggestions for new articles below. If you are the author, or an author, please include a note that it is your own work. Please justify why you think an article should be featured.

  • Nominations are discussed for a minimum of seven days. Please discuss each nomination and try to come to a consensus before listing an article on Wikinews:Featured articles. Please add {{FAC}} to listed articles' talk pages, and add {{FA}} to successful candidates. See the archive directory for past nominations.
  • There is no upper limit to how long a nomination can be open. Newly-featured articles are often featured on social media, so it is advisable not to close more than two or three in quick succession. Likewise, multiple articles in a single nomination are discouraged.


Consider voting on previous nominations when you add an article to this list!

Please list new candidates at the top.

I'm delighted photoessays continue to crop up at exceptional quality. I'm a little disappointed a few images aren't captioned, but I don't think that alone should stop an otherwise breathtaking piece from being featured. BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 22:55, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
