All figures need to be given a running number (e.g. Figure 1, Figure 2 , Figure 3), and this should match its corresponding entry in your List of Figures. Number each figure consecutively. You only have one List of Figures—all artwork, photographs, graphs, tables, etc., should be numbered in the same way.
Include the figure number directly below the figure itself, followed by a short caption relating to the image, if appropriate. Captions are not included in your word count. If used, captions should be brief, appropriate and descriptive, explaining the image and its relevance to your text.

Figures should be displayed close to where they are most relevant to your writing, and should usually be mentioned directly. You can refer to each one by the figure number like an in-text citation, e.g. (Figure 1).
