Schibsted is the largest media group in Scandinavia, and has been a driving force in the public debate for over 150 years. We are proud of the responsibility that comes with this.

Schibsted Media Group owns the leading newspapers in Sweden – Aftonbladet and Svenska Dagbladet, as well as Norway – Aftenposten and VG. Our publications are renowned for their exceptional journalism, high editorial independence and strong digital development.

Today, the need for great journalism is more urgent than ever as journalism is a fundamental force for democracy.

Our journalists strive for breadth and depth in their reporting: they ask critical questions, expose counterarguments, check facts and present the findings in a context that is both comprehensive and proportional.

The multichannel publication of the series ‘Användarna’ (The Users) in 2017 is a classic example of editorial collaboration among Schibsted’s media houses (VG in Norway and Svenska Dagbladet and Aftonbladet in Sweden). It had a strong and immediate impact on society.

The Power of Journalism

Starting in 2017, we organize The Power of Journalism event together with the Tinius Trust. The Power of Journalism is a forum that celebrates journalism and its dynamic future. We bring together leaders in our industry to share ideas, discuss important issues, inspire each other, and strengthen the ties between those of us who believe in the future of journalism.

As part of the event, we honor the journalists behind exemplary pieces of journalism that build trust and enforce its power. The Schibsted Journalism Awards concludes the Power of Journalism Day. The winning stories showcase the best from our media houses in terms of investigative journalism, storytelling and innovation. The winner of each of the three prizes is awarded NOK 100,000.

We can all empower great journalism. Every day you read a truly important story, please celebrate it and give it the trademark of #powerofjournalism.

The more powerful our journalism, the stronger our democracies.
