- The infographic should support an overall theme and not be just an image to support an article.
- The text and images should support each other and should overemphasize one over the other. Good infographics will have a high information density in their images. The images should be as simple as possible and accurately portray the information.
- Scalable vector images are preferred. This allows for others to edit the images (in, for example, Inkscape and Gimp) and to flawlessly resize them.
- Branding with the RationalWiki logo or with the words "A RationalWiki Infographic" is encouraged.
- The image should be in the Infographics category
- The image have a license that allows editing and re-use.
