Utlysning: Fritt Ords monitorprosjekt om status for ytringsfriheten i Norge 2020–2021
Wars do not end when the battles subside, but rather live on for the parties involved, in their collective memories and in their literature. War and war events provide input for history writing, debates and fiction.

Fritt Ord hereby invites applications for grants of NOK 60 000 for library-related communications activities and debate based on Norwegian and foreign prose, fiction and comic strips about war.

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.
