FRITT ORD FOUNDATION'S GRANTS FOR CRITICS: GOOD CRITICISM 2019 - 2020

​The Fritt Ord Foundation announces a call for applications for 10 annual grants of NOK 200 000 each for critics who write for Norwegian daily or weekly newspapers, or who write reviews for TV/radio.

The grants can be awarded to critics who work in any field related to art or culture. The grants are intended to result in the production of concrete, ongoing reviews throughout the year; the goal is to help improve the quality and professionalisation of 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 cultivating it.

Freemuse will officially unveil The State of Artistic Freedom 2019, an analysis of 673 cases of violations of artistic freedom that occurred in different cultural spheres in 80 countries throughout 2018.

As the European Union heads into a pivotal election year, sixteen philanthropic foundations including Fritt Ord have come together to form Civitates. Civitates is a consortium that provides funding for civil society actors to come together and revitalise public discourse. In the coming weeks we'll be sharing the stories of some of our grant recipients.

Good communication is key in the twenty-first century to informing public opinion. As the debate over refugees and migrants has become ever more polarized in Italy, Civitates has funded projects of support for civil society organizations which have found themselves on the frontline of humanitarian action and of efforts to try to explain the real story behind the anti-migration noise to the public and politicians.

Journalistikk

​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.

The programme 'Quality Journalism in a New Era' ran from 2015 to 2017, awarding 10 million NOK annually.

The programme 'Norwegian Journalism' will run from 2017 to 2020, and award 25 million NOK annually.

Norwegian Journal of Photography

The Norwegian Journal of Photography was established in 2011 to serve as an arena where independent photographers who work in the interface between traditional press photography on the one hand and art photography on the other will be able to present the full scope of their projects. NJP brings together and supports selected Norwegian photographic documentary projects, and the first edition of the book was launched in February 2013.
