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 9,165 of such images in the Commons repository which is roughly 0.027% of the available images (33,597,678). 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.
