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.
