Telenor Culture Prize

The Telenor Culture Prize “Boundless Communication” is each year awarded to artists or institutions that have distinguished themselves in the Scandinavian cultural environment, but also have established themselves internationally. The award amounts to 500,000 NOK

The Telenor Culture Prize has been awarded each year since 1995. From the outset being a purely Norwegian prize, it has for the past 10 years become an international award. The candidates represent all art forms, many combine different art expressions, and the prize has been awarded to established artists as well as to newcomers.

The Culture Prize is a part of the Telenor Culture Program.

This is the jury of the Telenor Culture Prize:

Ingrid Kindem, Composer and Musician, (leader of the jury)

Lars Saabye Christensen, Author

Asta Busingye Lydersen, Singer and Actress
