From Wikinews, the free news source you can write!
Jump to navigation Jump to 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:

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!

  • Support, it's been more than a month and no one has opposed this nomination so can't this be closed as having gained silent consensus. EN-Jungwon (talk) 14:53, 25 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@EN-Jungwon: From above: There is no upper limit to how long a nomination can be open. Sometimes it has taken nearly a year. Cheers, --SVTCobra 18:52, 28 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
