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!

Please list new candidates at the top.

[OPEN] Iranian International Master Dorsa Derakhshani discusses her chess career with Wikinews[edit]

I reviewed this article. Kept my interest; the length did not become a problem for me, though I'm aware it's long. I thought when reviewing it, it was FA material, and now that we've had some time to absorb it, I still think so. --Pi zero (talk) 20:27, 25 May 2020 (UTC)



  • Support as nominator. --Pi zero (talk) 20:27, 25 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Support. I most certainly applaud such a close view into interesting and challenging, perhaps inspiring, biography. --Gryllida (talk) 06:10, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
  • Support. This is a really interesting article and is one of the most in-depth articles I've seen on here (though that's not saying much :P). Seemplez 09:12, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
