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.

  • Support This isn't overly strong on images, but it gets a few in. It's a solid capture of Burke's perspective. If someone wants a role model for an interview of this sort, I'm happy to have this one held up as an example. --Pi zero (talk) 18:32, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Support Yeah, I agree. --Bddpaux (talk) 15:27, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
