Call for Applications: Good criticism 2016

The Fritt Ord Foundation announces a call for applications for 10 annual grants of NOK 200 000 each for critics who write for daily or weekly newspapers, or who supply reviews to TV/radio. The grant scheme will provide aggregate funding of MNOK 6 over a three-year period.

The grants are available to critics who work in any field of art or culture. The grants are intended to result in the production of concrete, ongoing reviews throughout the year; the goal is to improve the level of quality and professionalisation for a number of Norwegian critics each year. The Fritt Ord Foundation would like to give more critics better opportunities to pursue their profession and to spend more time on it. The grants are intended to be in addition to other revenue streams from reviews. 

Application deadline: Friday 20 May 2016 at 3 p.m.
