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.

Utlysning: Den gode kritikken 2016

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.

The grants are available to critics who work in any field of art or culture. The grants are intended to result in the production of concrete, ongoing reviews throughout the year; the goal is to improve the level of quality and professionalisation for 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 on it. The grants are intended to be in addition to other revenue streams from reviews.

Application deadline: Friday 20 May 2016 at 3 p.m.

The Fritt Ord Foundation invites applications for MNOK 10 annually over three years for journalism projects, starting in 2015. The programme is entitled 'Quality Journalism in a New Era'.

For quite some time, the Fritt Ord Foundation has had media and journalism as one of its core target areas. In the current demanding situation being experienced by the media and thereby by the general public as a whole, we want to do even more to pave the way for and support critical, meaningful high-quality journalism in several fields.
