Featured pictures


Featured pictures are images that the community has chosen to be highlighted as some of the finest on Commons. This page is a gallery of the various pictures - photographs, computerised graphics, animated media, etc. There are currently 9,251 of such images in the Commons repository which is roughly 0.027% of the available images (34,091,988). You can find all featured pictures in Category:Featured pictures on Wikimedia Commons.

Images may be considered for featured status by being listed at Commons:Featured picture candidates, where the community will reach a consensus. Further instructions and information is given at the page itself. You can also see some of our highly skilled contributors; our photographers and our illustrators, who have contributed to the Featured Pictures of the Commons.

Picture of the day
Vista de Iquique, Chile, 2016-02-11, DD 20.JPG
View of the Dragon Dune in the foreground and the city of Iquique in the background, Tarapacá Region, northern Chile. The dune is about 20 000 years old and was originated by coastal winds when the sea level was 100 metres (110 yd) further inside. The dune looks menacing, especially from the bottom, but is stable. It became a Natural Sanctuary in 2005 but before that it was partially removed in the West wing to allow the growth of the city of Iquique. The dune is 6.4 kilometres (4.0 mi) long, between 150–550 metres (160–600 yd) wide and 320 metres (350 yd) high. Iquique has aprox. 185 000 inhabitants and is a prosperous and fast-growing city thanks to the free trade activities.
