Current nominations/Forthcoming nominations:
Things either currently nominated, about to be nominated, or awaiting renomination
May also include things about to be nominated, but only when there's a problem at WP:FPC (or they're only nearly done, but will be done in a day or two. This is wildly optimistic in most cases, and you should really not pay attention to anything I say about scheduling.)

2021... was not a good year for many reasons, chief amongst them the fact that the pandemic, meant to end by Christmas 2020... failed to do so. But at least I managed a single featured picture before it all fell apart.
