Featured pictures in Wikipedia

This page highlights images that the Wikipedia community finds beautiful, stunning, impressive, or informative. Featured pictures are the visual equivalent to featured articles and, as such, are even more subjective. There are currently 4,036 featured pictures, and they are categorized by the topic they represent. All featured pictures are also available in a category.

If you wish to add a specific image to this page, please nominate it on Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates. Images listed here should be either in the public domain or covered by a free license.

One featured picture is chosen as the picture of the day. You can include this box anywhere (e.g., your user page) by adding the text {{pic of the day}} or {{POTD}} where you want the picture to be shown.

Featured pictures from all Wikimedia projects can be browsed by subject or by country on Wikimedia Commons.
