Featured pictures are images from highly skilled photographers and illustrators that the Wikimedia Commons community has chosen as some of the highest quality on the site.

Simply click on the name of a category on this page to see all the featured images for that subject. To reuse any images from Wikimedia Commons please see this guide.

There are currently 10,312 of such images in the Commons repository which is roughly 0.025% of the available images (40,816,875). All featured images are entered into our annual Picture of the Year competition.

Images may be considered for featured status by being listed at Commons:Featured picture candidates, where the community will reach a consensus. You can find all featured pictures in Category:Featured pictures on Wikimedia Commons.

Old candidates for Featured pictures are listed here. There are also chronological lists of featured pictures: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and current month.
