Have you ever wondered about what it might be like to live in another time? Or what it was like to grow up in a society in which the standard of living was much worse than today? Perhaps you have parents or grandparents who have experienced war or great upheavals? Which opportunities and limitations were people subject to in the past? Did they act and think differently from us?

My family in history is being organised by the Norwegian Historical Society (HIFO) with support from the Fritt Ord Foundation. It is open to pupils in lower and upper secondary school. This competition revolves around everyday people, making them the main characters. Pupils are urged to investigate topics such as democracy, war and conflict, changing living conditions, migration and working life in the light of their own family history.

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.

Kritikerstipend

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.

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.
