Ministry of Culture
Primary distribution of lottery funds to sporting activities in 2015:
Lowering the threshold for children and young people’s participation in sporting and physical activities is one of the main priorities in this year’s distribution of lottery funds.
The Government has set a date for the switch-off of Norway’s FM radio stations, having concluded that the criteria for the technology shift are now met. The decision to switch off all FM radio stations in 2017 follows up the radio digitisation mandate issued by the Storting (the Norwegian parliament) in 2011.
The Ministry of Culture has adopted amendments in the regulations relevant to lotteries with the result that now a Norway may arrange a National Championship in poker. Permission is now given for up to five regional qualification tournaments and three types of tournament poker.
