Valued Picture Candidates (VPC)[edit]

Valued Pictures are images that add significant value to Wikipedia articles, either by illustrating article content particularly well, or by being a hard to obtain free use image of the content being illustrated.

Valued Picture Candidates (VPC) is a place where you can have images evaluated for Valued Picture status, and can receive feedback on the image's potential as a possible Featured Picture. Prior to the Valued Picture (VP) function, this page was formerly known as Wikipedia:Picture peer review.

Valued Pictures may possess many of the characteristics of a Featured Picture, but have a greater emphasis on high encyclopaedic value over technical quality. For the criteria against which VPs are judged refer to the Valued Picture Criteria.

For promotion, if an image is listed here for at least seven days with three or more opinions in support (excluding the nominator), and consensus is in its favour, it can be added to the Wikipedia:Valued pictures gallery. Note that promotion is ultimately at the discretion of the closer. For example anonymous and sockpuppet opinions are generally disregarded, as are opinions that do not address criteria.

Instructions[edit]

Please ensure you have read and understood the VP Criteria prior to nominating.

If you would rather receive comments only on your picture please request this in your nomination. Other users will then only provide you with comments and feedback, rather than VPC Support and Oppose opinions. If you request to receive comments only there is no requirement to fully satisfy the VP Criteria, although comments may still address these.

For general advice on editing pictures see Wikipedia:How to improve image quality.


To create a Valued Picture Candidate nomination, follow these three steps:


Step 1: Create a new subpage named   Wikipedia:Valued picture candidates/ExampleName replacing ExampleName with an appropriate title:


Step 2: Fill in the requested data, including your reasons for nominating, and click Save page.

Step 3: Transclude the newly created subpage to the TOP of the Valued picture candidates list (direct link).

How to comment[edit]

Please take care to be polite and considerate in your opinions, and ensure that your reasons address the VP Criteria. If you do not feel the image meets the criteria, try to suggest how your concerns may be able to be addressed.

If the user has requested comments only, then please refrain from making Support and Oppose opinions.

When making a 'vote' on an image:

  • If you approve of a picture, write Support followed by your reasons in the Opinions section.
  • If you don't approve of a picture, write Oppose followed by your reasons in the Opinions section.
  • Rather than posting an Oppose vote, you may prefer to post a Comment raising issues with the picture.
  • There are no Delist nominations at VPC. However, at times a nominator may suggest an image that they feel should Replace a current VP in order to avoid duplication, e.g., a similar image of higher quality or better composition. In that case they will make a nomination, but be clear that they are proposing a replacement for an existing VP. In this case Opinions should start with Replace or Keep, followed by the reasons.

To change your opinion, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

Remember to sign all opinions and comments with --~~~~.


The VPC archive contains all opinions and comments collected on this page, and also nomination results.

Please remember to be civil, not to bite the newbies and to comment on the image, not the person.

Flower of Alpine Saxifrage[edit]

Original: A flower of Alpine Saxifrage (Saxifraga nivalis) observed on a cliff near Upernavik, North-West Greenland.
Reason
The Saxifrage family is known as being specially adept at surviving in cracks of cliffs. The particular species shown here is furthermore specially adept at coping with a medium to high arctic oceanic environment. A plant, which exists despite all odds. The flowers are very small and you barely notice them in passing. I estimate the diameter of the flower on the photo was about 6mm. The flower is not yet fully developed. There are no other contributions of this species on Commons except this image of mine of the whole plant.

Valued Picture Criteria[edit]

The criteria for Valued Picture Candidates are based on those for Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates (see Featured picture criteria).

The key difference to Featured Pictures is that Valued Pictures place primary emphasis on the picture's encyclopaedic value to Wikipedia. Thus standards for encyclopaedic value are higher at VP (e.g., the image must have been in its article for at least one month, and it must be a significant addition to its article). By contrast Featured Pictures place higher emphasis on 'technical quality' of the picture.

Note: an image cannot be both a VP and an FP. Therefore you cannot nominate an existing FP at VPC. You may nominate existing VPs at FPC, but if a VP is promoted to FP, it will have its VP tag replaced with the FP tag, and will be removed from the VP Gallery.

The criteria for Valued Pictures are:

  1. The image is encyclopaedically valuable to Wikipedia and has been suitably illustrating an article for at least one month. Images that only make a minor contribution, such as a gallery image, would not be considered to have high encyclopaedic value. Images must have been suitably located in at least one article for a minimum of one month in order to help demonstrate that other editors of that article consider the image to be worth retaining and thus to have encyclopaedic value. Images that do not meet this criteria are ineligible for VP status.
  2. The image is accurate and has an appropriate caption in its article.
  3. The image is of a suitable size for its purpose. In general this means it should have acceptable resolution at image page size. The resolution should be sufficient that the key details being illustrated are clearly visible.
  4. The image is of acceptable technical quality, without excessive digital manipulation. Technical quality covers such things as composition, lighting, colour balance, and sharpness. In general the image should have acceptable quality at image page size.
  5. The image has a free license.

Note: to view an image at image page size, click on the thumbnail version displayed in the nomination on this page.



Closing procedure[edit]

When NOT promoted, perform the following
  1. Place the following text at the bottom of the WP:VPC/subpage:
    • {{VPCresult|Not promoted| }} --~~~~ [[Category:Ended valued picture nominations]]
    • Do NOT put any other information inside the VPCresult template. It should be copied and pasted exactly.
  2. Move the nomination entry to the top of the Wikipedia:Valued picture candidates/Archives for the current period. This is done by simply moving the line {{Wikipedia:Valued picture candidates/Image name}} from this page to the top of the currnet archive.

    Promoted Image:FILENAME.JPG --Username
    • Do NOT put any other information inside the VPCresult template. It should be copied and pasted exactly.
  2. Move the nomination entry to the top of the Wikipedia:Valued picture candidates/Archives for the current period. This is done by simply moving the line {{Wikipedia:Valued picture candidates/Image name}} from this page to the top of the archive.
  3. If an edited or alternative version of the originally nominated image is promoted, make sure that all articles contain the Valued Picture version.
  4. Update the picture's tag by adding {{ValuedPicture|image_name}} (replace image_name with the nomination page name, i.e., the image_name from Wikipedia:Valued picture candidates/image_name).
  5. Add the image to the Valued Pictures Gallery - newest on top. Include a short caption using the basic format "Article, by Photographer".
  6. Notify the nominator by placing {{subst:PromotedNominationVPC|Image:Image.ext}} on the nominator's talkpage. For example: {{subst:PromotedNominationVPC|Image:Blue morpho butterfly.jpg}}

VP Gallery Page[edit]

This page would be set up similar to Wikipedia:Featured pictures thumbs; a rough example is shown below. Image would be grouped into galleries of 100.


Valued Pictures are images that add significant value to Wikipedia articles, either by illustrating article content particularly well, or by being a hard to obtain free use image of the content being illustrated. They may possess many of the characteristics of a Featured Picture, but have a greater emphasis on high encyclopaedic value over technical quality.

For the criteria against which VPs are judged refer to the Valued Picture Criteria. If you wish to nominate an image for Valued Picture status, please do so at Wikipedia:Valued picture candidates. Images can only be added to this page following a successful Valued pictures review.

The category Wikipedia valued pictures shows the thumbnails listed alphabetically.

There are currently 0 Valued Pictures.
