Submit application


The Norwegian Photographic Fund (Nofofo) welcomes applications twice a year: February 1st and 1st September 1st at 1:00 pm.

The application portal opens a month before the application deadlines.

New application portal

The Norwegian Photographic Fund launched a new application portal for the first application deadline of 2019. The portal replaces the old system for applying and submitting reports. Currently note that the portal is only in Norwegian.
Go to the new application portal and APPLY HERE.

What can you apply for

You may apply for exhibition,- project,- or publication funding, and also for funding other other activities that promote Norwegian camera-based art such as curatorial activity, lecture series, workshops etc. It is unfortunately not possible to apply for funding permanent production equipment, such as PC/Mac, camera, etc.

Who can apply for funding

The applicant must have completed arts education at BA-level or higher, or be able to demonstrate an artistic practice within camera-based art. Norwegian Photographic Fund allocates support to artists actively working with photography and other camera-based forms of expression who live and/or work in Norway. All applicants who meet the criteria are evaluated on equal terms.

Who can not apply for funding

Applications from students will not be considered, except for applications from final year students (higher education, BA- og MA level). If you have received funding from Norwegian Photographic Fund, you can not apply again until one year after.


Download the guidelines to the application HERE.

After receiving financial funding

A report needs be submitted by end of the project. A new application for project funding will not be considered before the report is submitted and approved.

Norwegian Photographic Fund must be credited in publications, information materials etc. Logo can be found HERE.
If you need another version of the logo, please contact Nofofo by email.

Applicants can expect an answer in March (for applications in February) and October (for applications in September). We ask for patience and understanding that the board do not have the capacity to justify refusal for applications.
