The Rise and Fall of Fake News

The Fritt Ord Foundation and The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters invite the public to a conversation about fake news, fact-checking and public trust, on Tuesday 17 October 2017, 5 p.m., at Uranienborgveien 2.

In 2016, Oxford Dictionaries declared post-truth its international word of the year, and defined it as the state of affairs when "objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief." PolitiFact named fake news its 2016 “Lie of the Year”. Since then, the term has lost much of its initial meaning and content in the public debate.

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.
