Arts competition

The Dutch architect Jan Wils won the gold medal in architectural design with his design of the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam

The ranking of the 1928 arts competitions is based on the official report The Ninth Olympiad (1928) of the Dutch National Olympic Committee.[2] Art competitions were held during the Olympic Games from 1912 until 1948.[5]

For the 13 arts events a total of 29 medals were awarded: 9 golden medals, 10 silver medals, and 10 bronze medals. These numbers are inequal, because not for all events three medals were awarded. There was only a silver medal awarded for dramatic works in literature and only a bronze medal for composition for orchestra in music. And also in music, no medals were awarded for compositions for song and composition for one instrument. The most medals (8) were won by contestants from Germany, the most gold medals (2) were won by contestants from the Netherlands.[2]

The countries are ranked by the number of gold medals won by the athletes of that country. If countries are tied, first the number of silver medals is taken into consideration and then the number of bronze medals. If, after the above, countries are still tied, equal ranking is given and they are listed alphabetically.
