NJP seeks new photographers

​The Norwegian Journal of Photography is now seeking photographers who aspire to take part in the fifth round of NJP. The deadline for applications is Friday, 5 April 2019.

2011 marked the advent of the Norwegian Journal of Photography (NJP), providing an arena for photographers to develop and display the full range of their projects. NJP offers an environment that provides encouragement and constructive criticism of works from the perspective of telling stories and building bridges between the more classic documentary photography and art photography.

The State of Artistic Freedom 2019 – Whose Narratives Count?
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 5 March 2019, at 3 p.m. Applications should be submitted to the Fritt Ord Foundation's application centre.
As the European Union heads into a pivotal election year, sixteen philanthropic foundations including Fritt Ord have come together to form Civitates. Civitates is a consortium that provides funding for civil society actors to come together and revitalise public discourse. In the coming weeks we'll be sharing the stories of some of our grant recipients.

The stabbing and death of Pawel Adamowicz, the liberal mayor of the Polish city of Gdansk in January 2019 was perhaps the clearest sign yet of the tensions and divisions in the country. Civitates has funded projects of support for civil society organizations which have worked tirelessly in difficult conditions to try to break down these divisions and keep democracy and public participation at the heart of society.
​Are you planning to write a master's thesis on the relationship between §112 of the Constitution of Norway and climate change?

The Fritt Ord Foundation and the Norwegian Climate Foundation are announcing up to three climate grants for students at the faculties of Law at the University of Tromsø, the University of Bergen and the University of Oslo. The grants are earmarked for students who would like to write a major* master's thesis. The grants are for NOK 50 000 each.

Grete Andrea Kvaal received NOK 40 000 for the exhibition "I know all my reindeer", which focuses on the role of women in reindeer husbandry. Kvaal has followed Karen Anna Logje Gaup (picture) through three decades.

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 '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.
