Featured images follow the same nomination process as for Featured Articles, but as they appear in a different section of the main page, a separate series of votes is held to decide which images meet the required standard.

For an image to be eligible for Featured status, it must be used in a UESP article. This is to prevent specially-taken beauty shots from stealing the limelight.

A gallery of older Featured Images can be found here. Similarly, the archives of previous nominations can be found here. Note that not all failed nominations are included.

Featured Image Process[edit]


Any registered member can nominate any image at any time. Nominated images should be of high quality and meet the site's image standards.

To nominate an image, list it on the bottom of this page with a three-tier heading, (===Example===), and briefly explain why you think the image should be given featured status.

This is another great image. It appears cinematic, which is rare for the TES series.

After an image has been nominated, any registered member can vote to support or oppose each nomination. Each member can only vote once for a given image, but a member may change his/her vote by striking out the original vote and replacing it with the revised vote.

To vote on an image, state whether you support or oppose the image for featured image status. A vote should be in bold, and all votes must be signed. For example:
* '''Support''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Oppose''': <Comment> --~~~~

Commenting with your vote is optional, but if you oppose a nomination, please state how the image must be improved to get your support for featured status.

If you are not yet ready to vote but would still like to add your thoughts, you may use:

* '''Comment''': <Comment> --~~~~ or
* '''Question''': <Question> --~~~~

And fill in your concerns or questions.


UESP Administrators will periodically make decisions on image nominations. Decisions will only be made if:

  • The image has been nominated for more than seven days.
  • Five or more votes have been placed.

Nominations not meeting these criteria will be left open until a decision can be reached.

Images whose nominations pass will receive featured image status on the front page for two weeks (which may be extended up to one month if there is a shortage of images), and receive a small bronze star (Featured star.png) on the top right corner. If an image achieves featured status before the present featured image's time expires, it must wait its turn.

Nominations and Votes[edit]



An awesome image showing the transformation from True Cat to dro-m'Athra. It's a great companion image for our new Lore:Dro-m'Athra article, but I feel the quality is so good it ought to be featured. If you compare it to the older version of the file (taken by yours truly), you can tell that this image manages to capture the NPC in an interesting pose, and shows off the transformation very well.

  • Support: As nominator.—Legoless (talk) 11:19, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: I had no idea what was going on in this image before reading the article, but even without context it was intriguingly creepy. Echo (talk) 17:32, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: This is the first NPC image in a long while (looks like since 2015 and that was a ghost) and it works! I think for an NPC image to stand out among the thousands there are for ESO, something needs to be happening. And what's happening here hasn't been seen in a previous game: sort of like transforming into a werewolf or vampire lord if I understand correctly. —Dillonn241 (talk) 11:19, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: I agree with the nominator's words, I remember when I was there exploring the first time and thought that this scene would be a good FI. Also, agree with what Dillonn says (except you're wrong in that we do in fact have a ESO NPC image as current FI :P). Tib (talk) 11:36, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
    • Comment: Oh, I was sure that was a quest image because of the aspect ratio, but you're right that it's categorized under NPC. In that case, we haven't had a 1:1 NPC image in a long time! —Dillonn241 (talk) 12:55, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: I don't have a lot to say but cool image. Shows emotion that you rarely see from NPCs.--FioFioFio (talk) 00:21, 22 September 2018 (UTC)



A picturesque scene. A pretty countryside village in the foreground with the mountains, Lake Rumare and the Imperial City making an impressive backdrop.

  • Support: As nominator.--SMcM (talk) 12:35, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: Super image. A good overview of the town is still captured along with showing one of many great views you can see from that town. Forfeit (talk) 16:22, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: The lighting is better than a lot of Oblivion images. Definitely worth having on the main page for a while. —Dillonn241 (talk) 00:08, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: I'm biased. I see Oblivion, I support. —Legoless (talk) 00:29, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: A nice shot of the village, showing the scale of the world. And as a bonus, no visible NPCs! Echo (talk) 18:54, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
    • Comment: Actually if you squint you can see a farmer (which is actually quite unusual for Aleswell!). —Legoless (talk) 14:32, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: Pretty good landscape pic for Oblivion. --FioFioFio (talk) 00:21, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

Really nice image of the Clockwork Basilica showing the gears in the sky during dusk or dawn. We never really had an image of Clockwork City and I think this one would be a great way to showcase its beauty.

  • Support: As nominator. --Ilaro (talk) 00:17, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: The lighting is incredible and so is the amount of detail in the image.--FioFioFio (talk) 00:21, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: Great image! I would like to see something from the Clockwork City DLC featured. —Dillonn241 (talk) 19:09, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

File:ON-quest-The Dreaming Cave 02.jpg[edit]

ON-quest-The Dreaming Cave 02.jpg

This is an image captured by Vyraesi, our currently most active ESO photographer with lots of beautiful images in her portfolio. Although the story behind this image is also interesting, the reason I'm nominating it is because it has a really unique cinematic effect - just look at Valsirenn's posture and face! There's not a lot of ESO images that have this. Moving on, this image is from Summerset's main story quest line. In this particular quest we venture deep into Spiral Skein with Valsirenn, to find and rescue one very significant character in ESO - needless to say quite an epic adventure. This image deserves to be shown on the main page.

  • Support: As nominator. --Tib (talk) 15:11, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: I'm not sure how this image was even taken. Everything is crystal clear and lined up perfectly. All sorts of things to look at when you see it up close too. —Dillonn241 (talk) 19:09, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support: This is an incredibly cinematic screenshot!--FioFioFio (talk) 19:38, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
