Wikinews:Image copyright tags

Shortcut:
WN:ICT

After uploading a non-free image for fair use in accordance with our Wikinews:Fair use policy, you must both apply to the image page one of the following image copyright tags and provide on the image page a rationale explaining how the use of the image in each and all of the Wikinews articles that it is used in constitutes a fair use of that image.

Any image uploaded on or after March 23, 2007 which does not have both a tag and a rationale may be deleted on-sight, so ensure that you apply both. (If you see a non-free image uploaded before March 23, 2007 that lacks any of the required fair use rationales for the articles that it is used in, please draw the community's attention to that image so that appropriate rationales can be determined, or the image removed.)

Fair use rationalesEdit

Each individual use of a non-free image in an article must be accompanied by a fair use rationale. If you upload a new non-free image for use in a new article, you must provide a fair use rationale for its use in that article. If you use a previously uploaded non-free image in a new article, you must provide an additional fair use rationale, for the additional use of the image.

To ensure a rationale is complete, it can be helpful to use {{Non-free use rationale}} and fill-in each of the parameters.
