You can have a DPL that includes:
- Category:Africa and Category:Musicians to show musicians from Africa
-- we can produce a list of images, or a gallery
- Category:Ariel Sharon and Category:Political Cartoons but not
- Category:CurrentEvents but not Category:Disputed
The intersections can be formatted as tables, or as lists, or as
columns, or as galleries, etc.
This way our landing pages are just listing images using categories as

Wikinews uses an older version of the DPL to allow articles to appear
on the right pages without anyone linking to them explicitly (e.g.
"last 10 articles about science and technology in Africa that are not
disputed and have been marked as published")
