During the gala, which took place on Monday at the Warsaw headquarters of TVP, the winners were announced Public Media Awards 2022. The statuette in the “Word” category, funded by PAP, went to sociologist prof. Andrzej Zybertowicz – advisor to Andrzej Duda. The jury appreciated him for “showing social and political reality as it really is, and not in a version consistent with political correctness”. “Andrzej Zybertowicz’s work is neither ordinary nor extraordinary literature, but non-fiction.

Receiving the award, Prof. Zybertowicz admitted: “As it happens in life, I don’t know what it’s about again.” “Especially because I remembered reading Ernest Bryll’s The November Thing in high school about 50 years ago. It is incomprehensible to me how I could surpass him today. Thank you very much,” he emphasized. The jury of the “Word” category was composed of: Joanna Siedlecka, Krzysztof Masłoń, Wojciech Tomczyk, Andrzej Mastalerz and Radosław Gil.
Renata Przemyk resigns from the Public Media Award
“Ladies and Gentlemen, it is very nice to be noticed and awarded, especially if you are an independent artist and the award is accompanied by a large amount of money. I regret to inform you even more, already at the nomination stage, that I could not accept this award. The program line of public media diverges with my worldview line. We also have different views on women’s rights, tolerance, art and freedom of speech. I still grieve for the former Three, who taught us to think independently and ironically, “we read in the published message.
The singer further emphasizes that “although it may end with the nomination itself” – she could not wait any longer. “At the time of the announcement, resignation from the award received would have a stronger connotation. However, if I was not awarded the award, my silent expectation could be treated as hope of receiving it, and I would not want even a shadow of doubt to remain. Respect to the jury!” she added.
Conductor Łukasz Borowicz received the award in the “Music” category, sponsored by Polish Radio.

Speaking at the ceremony, Dłużewska pointed out that she was giving this award to the heroes of her films, without whom they would never have been made. “I’m talking about all the heroes, but above all about the time between 2010 and 2015, when I had the great happiness and honor to work with the best, smartest, people most affected by the so-called fate at that time,” she clarified. “I have no words to thank them for the honor that they wanted to trust us and let us describe their fate, the fate of Poland, in a film,” she explained. The “Image” category jury included: Aneta Woźniak, Anna Popek, Przemysław Babiarz, Paweł Rzewuski and Jerzy Kopański.
The statuette in the “Idea” category, awarded by the presidents of 17 regional Polish Radio stations, was awarded to the poet, singer and composer Leszek Długosz for “consistently proving with his many years of artistic activity that the heritage of national culture is not subject to condemnatory quarrels, but to the highest values, such as truth, goodness and beauty.”
The award was received by journalist Maciej Zdziarski on behalf of the laureate. “When last year, on November 11, Leszek Długosz was awarded by the President of the Republic of Poland with the highest and most honorable Polish decoration – the Order of the White Eagle, I thought to myself that it was an award for a great artist, for a great personality and a man who can be an example for us. also an award for a certain idea – as the category in which Leszek Długosz won today is called – that public radio would unite us into a great community of spirit” – he mentioned.
In the recording played during the gala, Leszek Długosz thanked for the distinction. He mentioned that he has been associated with the Polish Radio for over half a century as a singer, composer and columnist. He said that the purpose of his artistic activity was to promote music that strengthens well-being and leads to the conclusion that thanks to the achievements of Polish culture “it is worth being a Pole”. “If I contribute to this, it means that my life was for something more,” he assessed.
