Christina Skreiberg (36) is a freelance feature journalist, contributing to the weekend supplements of Norwegian newspapers, and to national & international magazines. She writes about cultural & social issues, art, lifestyle-tendencies, profile interviews and a lot more.
In 2016 she was awarded the prize "Freelancer of the Year" / "Årets frilanser 2016" for her documentary project Hei nabo!. The project resulted in her first book and her first solo-exhibition. For the past six years she's knocked on doors and invited herself into the homes of her former neighbours in an estate at Tøyen, a multicultural area in Oslo. The result is 20 stories, 20 pictures, of people form allover, all of them living in identical flats. More info: facebook.com/heinabo & heinabo.no.
Up until summer 2013, she was the commissioning editor of Aftenposten Junior, Norway's first newspaper for kids. She has developed the concept along with the editor. The paper has won several media prizes, nationally and internationally.
Christina has a journalism degree from City University of London. During her four years in London she worked for The Times and then, in pure DIY spirit, launched the East London magazine "ditched". The magazine had a distribution of 15,000 copies, and she was nominated for The Guardian Student Media Award for her work as editor and publisher.
She is based in her hometown Oslo, but has also lived in Pittsburgh (1998-99), Guatemala (2001), London (2001 -2006) and Copenhagen (2007).
