According to jury´s words, they awarded the work of Pavol, because: "He has taken part in a number of fascinating expeditions to all the seven continents, always with a camera, which inspires him to transpose the newly discovered world into pictures of exceptional beauty. The artist demonstrates a rare mastery of the aestetic and narrative aspects of the events, places, people and cultures he presents. He knows how to combine the visual layer of the film with the curiosity of man searching for the answers to questions that have been asked since the beginning of time and that have teir sources in ourselves and in the history of humankind. He places an equally strong emphasis on the existential questions and choices faced by people who are subject to extreme conditions or their own limitations."
