Nominations for the Freedom of Expression Foundation Prize 2019

Each year, Fritt Ord awards the Freedom of Expression Foundation Prize to individuals or institutions that have shown civil courage and worked to defend and strengthen freedom of expression and the conditions for it in Norway, especially by encouraging dynamic debate.

The Fritt Ord Foundation invites nominations for potential candidates for the prize. Nominations should be a maximum of 4000 characters long and include a brief description of the nominee's efforts and a grounded justification for why the person or organisation in question deserves the prize. Please do not send attachments.
The Fritt Ord Foundation is allocating up to MNOK 25 annually for four years for journalistic projects. The MNOK 100 initiative is entitled Norwegian Journalism.

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 public sphere as a whole, we aspire to do even more to support and promote high-quality journalism in several fields.

The call for applications has six deadlines for applications during the year. The next deadline is 9 November 2018, at 3 p.m. Applications should be submitted to the Fritt Ord Foundation's application centre.
Drawing as a form of expression can be simple or complicated; it can be political or just for fun and entertainment. A drawing can unite or tear apart. A drawing can illustrate a moment in time or tell a whole little story, be it fictitious or documentary. We invite you to submit texts, drawings, comic strips and/or media productions that deal with drawing as a form of expression.

The application deadlines for 2019 are:
  • 4 January
  • 8 March
  • 3 May
  • 2 August
  • 13 September
  • 1 November

Applications to the Fritt Ord Foundation should be submitted here: portal.frittord.no. (The English language option is in the top-right corner.) For further information, please contact tel. +47 23 01 46 46 or email: post@frittord.no.

Journalistikk

​For quite some time, the Fritt Ord Foundation has had media and journalism as one of its core target areas.

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.
