Call for applications: Fritt Ord Foundation Competition for upper secondary school 2017

The Fritt Ord Foundation Competition for upper secondary school is an annual competition that invites pupils to submit entries about freedom of expression and democracy. This year's topic is 'enemies of the people'.

Call for applications
Upper secondary school pupils: Welcome to enter the Fritt Ord Foundation competition! Discuss one or more enemies of the people. Write a paper or make a media production, and enter it in the competition. By 'enemy of the people', we are referring to someone who stands out from the crowd by promoting freedom of expression, and who is thereby perceived as an enemy by others. Please discuss a person or a specific issue. Take your point of departure in the play 'An Enemy of the People' by Henrik Ibsen, if you would like.

Call for nominations for the 2017 Free Media Awards

The Fritt Ord Foundation and the ZEIT-Stiftung Ebelin und Gerd Bucerius hereby invite nominations of journalists, bloggers, internet media and newspapers for the 2017 Free Media Awards.

The Free Media Awards are awarded to journalists and media outlets from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia.

The prizes provide support for journalists and media outlets that report independently and refuse to give up in the face of threats. The media operate under tremendous pressure in many countries in Eastern Europe. With the Free Media Awards, we seek to encourage journalists and media outlets to carry on their work, despite threats and violent oppression, and to contribute to strengthen independent journalism.

Fritt Ord Foundation and KORO - Public Art Norway / URO invite to the conference PUBLIC CALLING, at the National Theatre in Oslo, Norway.

In an era of austerity politics, securitized spaces, extrastate dominions, and distributed online networks, the notion of the public is increasingly in question if not crisis. For the conference Public Calling, both speakers and audience will find themselves together on stage, examining contemporary intersections of space and speech in order to test how the public can still be enacted today.

Free and open to all.
Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd November, 2016. 10.00–16.00

Download the full conference programme here.

Limited seating.
Registration: publiccalling@frittord.no
