How to upload a “fair use” image to Wikipedia – Wikimedia does not allow it


I gave up trying to find how to upload an image allowed by the press dept.

I read in one place in Wikipedia that I could use

{{Non-free promotional}} {{Fairuse}}

but it is probably not what they meant on the page

What would be the correct way to be allowed to upload an image I have permission to?

Rationale for allowing the image: it is the poster from the performance in the article about the performance.
The image file was given to me by their press secretary.

I just simply cannot figure out how to upload the image to wikimedia to be able to use the rationale

"Fair use" media files are not allowed on Commons

If you want to include a fair use image in Wikipedia, you'll have to use the local language variant of Wikipedia. For the English Wikipedia, the policy is described here: and to upload it you can use Wikipedia:File Upload Wizard to upload to Wikipedia.

Btw: If you are the copyright holder, you have the power to license it in a way that Wikimedia Commons allows it. I recommend asking your legal department.
