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.
Featured Image Process
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 () on the top right corner. If an image achieves featured status before the present featured image's time expires, it must wait its turn.

A fantastic closeup of one of the new types of dangerous flora in Murkmire. It's detailed, rich in colour, and makes for a great thumbnail.

Support: Great creature/flora image. —Dillonn241 (talk) 13:58, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
- Weak Oppose: Based on the clipping issue Rim of the Sky brought up, I think this needs to be retaken to be FI-worthy, especially since we have so many at the moment already in line. I don't agree on the lighting aspect, but he also has a point with it blending with the background, which is always something to look out for in these. —Dillonn241 (talk) 05:30, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
- Oppose: There's a lot wrong with this image being an FI. It's fine as an image of its subject matter, but there is quite evidently clipping between the grass textures on the floor and the plant's model. The saturation and lighting are also a bit off, and the closeup view makes it feel like everything in the image blends in. The Rim of the Sky (talk) 05:23, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
This is just an excellent shot. It comes off as eerie and forbidding, and the angle is just perfect.

This is a very cool image depicting the antagonist of Murkmire ESO DLC and it comes from the last encounter with her. Since this is basically taken during the fight, it is quite an achievement to manage to take this image. Kassandra is normally hidden inside this miregaunt guardian, so it takes some luck (or patience) to capture her in this cool pose. I should know, because I was there and tried! Besides that, the image also has good quality and sharpness. This is definitely one of the more unique ESO images that we have here on UESP.

- Support: A nice image, captures the character in a unique pose and position atop the Miregaunt that makes this stand out. I like the glow of the magic effects from her staff contrasting with the darkness in the background also. --SMcM (talk) 11:33, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
- Support: Great shot. --Jimeee (talk) 12:44, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
- Support: I'm a little concerned that the color scheme is almost the same as the recently queued Tsofeer Cavern image, but ignoring that this is a well-timed shot and I agree with the other comments. —Dillonn241 (talk) 06:21, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
A high-quality screenshot showing all three netch pets together. The reason this is significant is because this requires purchasing all of these limited-time Crown Store pets for use as furnishings. This image resembles the kind of work done in other gamespaces with the use of console manipulation, except here it was done entirely in-game using the furnishing system and cash transactions. It's great to be able to have ESO images like this, and this one is just particularly picturesque.

- Support: Good work getting them all together! —Dillonn241 (talk) 06:21, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
- Support: The colors are pleasing and the layout is nice. As mentioned, nice work on getting them positioned. --Talyyn (talk) 12:12, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
