Press release - 5 September 2017

The Fritt Ord Foundation will grant up to MNOK 25 each year for four years to promote journalism-related projects. The MNOK 100 initiative has been entitled 'Norwegian Journalism'.

For quite some time, the Fritt Ord Foundation has had media and journalism as one of its core target areas. In the demanding situation currently being experienced by the media and thereby by the public sphere as a whole, we aspire to do even more to support and promote high-quality journalism in several fields.

"For that reason, Fritt Ord is allocating up to MNOK 100 over a four-year period to support robust Norwegian journalism projects", states Grete Brochmann, chair of the Fritt Ord Foundation Board.

Fritt Ord and the Nobel Peace Centre invite the public to the opening ceremony of "Shifting Boundaries – European Photo Exhibition Award 03" at 6 p.m. on Friday, 15 September 2017. Twelve young European photographers will show how boundaries are challenged in a Europe in flux.

Young women with eating disorders, soldiers in Ukraine and barbed wire fences in Hungary are among the topics addressed by the photo exhibition, which explores both psychological and physical boundaries. Technological boundaries are also being challenged at a time when the differences between the virtual world and the real world can be hard to see. "Shifting Boundaries" is a visual experience, at the same time as it is a comment on today's Europe.
