Since the submitted works could only include 20,000 words, several chapters could be submitted from recently published books. Overall, the jury had to evaluate 40 literary works by 34 authors from 10 countries.
In the category Dramatic Works no gold and bronze medals were awarded, only a silver one. This was won by Paulo maiora canamus, real name Lauro Adolfo de Bosis, for his lyric drama Icarus, an Italian meter (11 syllables), which was inspired by Charles Lindbergh’s trans-oceanic flight. The work was published in 1930 in Milano, and was also translated into English and French.
