FRITT ORD FOUNDATION'S GRANTS FOR CRITICS: GOOD CRITICISM 2018 - 2019

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 write reviews for TV/radio.

The grants can be awarded to critics who work in any field related to art or culture. The grants are intended to result in the production of concrete, ongoing reviews throughout the year; the goal is to help improve the quality and professionalisation of 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 cultivating it.
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 seven deadlines for applications during the year. The next deadline is 18 May 2018, at 3 p.m. Applications should be submitted to the Fritt Ord Foundation's application centre.

Fritt Ord invites applications for grants of NOK 60 000 each for communications activities and discussions based on contemporary factual prose and fiction. For example, funding can be used for debates, seminars, talks with writers or discussion fora.

In recent years, libraries have taken on a whole new role as an arena for public discussions and debates by offering venues for events. Which new topics of debate can the libraries bring into the public space? Which relevant publications and authorships have the potential to capture the interest of a wide audience? Which topics of debate are of concern to young people today? Are there new forms of arrangements that inspire audiences to engage in dialogue and conflicts of opinion?

Setter klimautfordringene på agendaen

The Norwegian-Kenyan documentary film Thank you for the Rain was recently awarded the prize for best international film at the Sguardi Altrove Film Festival, received the World Wildlife Fund's prize for best film in the Habitat category at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, in addition to winning two Social Impact Media Awards: the Ethos Jury Prize and the Prize for Best Cinematography. The film was directed by Julia Dahr and produced by Hugh Hartford. The work to spread the film's message has been documented in a comprehensive "impact and outreach" report that can downloaded here.

Thank you for the Rain tells the story of Kenyan farmer Kisilu Musya, who began seven years ago to film his family and show how climate change was affecting their lives. When Kisilu's house was destroyed by a violent storm, he started a local movement of farmers. Their struggle brought him all the way to the major political drama that took place during the UN's climate negotiations in Paris.

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.
