The Norwegian Journal of Photography will be the focal point of the autumn's premier photography exhibition at the Henie Onstad Art Centre. 23 August 2019 will mark the opening of the exhibition "Norwegian Documentary Photography", featuring works by all the photographers who have taken part in the four volumes of NJP.

​​To identify and analyse the status of freedom of expression in Norway, the Fritt Ord Foundation is announcing the availability of up to MNOK 6 in framework funding for a research-based monitoring survey in 2020 - 2021.

The Monitoring Project on the status of freedom of expression in Norway has been carried out twice before by an interdisciplinary research consortium headed by the Institute for Social Research.

The Fritt Ord Foundation's project "Islam in Norway" invites the public to an open meeting about hatred and hostility towards Muslims, from 6-7.30 p.m. on Wednesday, 9 October 2019 at Kulturhuset, Youngs gate 6, Oslo.

When do hatred and hostility become dangerous, and why do these phenomena exist? What is it like to be subjected to hatred and hostility because of ethnic and religious affiliation? How do hatred and hostility towards Muslims influence society, language and identity, and what do we see when we draw parallels between hatred of Muslims and anti-Semitism? Exactly what is being done to identify and prevent this phenomenon?

Fritt Ord, the Norwegian Critics' Association and the Press Photographers' Club, Norway, invite the public to a conference on working conditions for media freelancers in Norway. Which structural changes in the media industry will affect freelancers' routine work days in future?

Application deadline: Wednesday 25 September 2019, at noon.

The Journalism Fellowship Programme at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism is aimed at journalists with suitable experience from around the world whose professional work would be enhanced by a period of reflection, research and intellectual exchange with other journalists in Oxford.

The film is 60 minutes long, and the event will last from 6.00 p.m. to 8.15 p.m. It is free of charge. Online reservations are not being taken, so tickets must be picked up at the Saga Cinema on a first come, first serve basis.
