A total of 94 works by 58 architects or architectural firms (with a total of 87 participants) from 14 countries were submitted for the two categories “Town Planning” and “Architectural Design”. The jury finally accepted 82 works for the competitions. The remaining project were exhibited “hors concours”. The exhibits for the two competitions “Town Planning” and “Architectural Design” were identical, but were assessed separately for both categories. Therefore, works that were not awarded with a medal cannot be attributed to either category.

In addition to the members listed above, Cultural officer Oswald Bieber (1874/1876-1955) and the future Minister of Armaments and War Production Albert Speer (1905-1981) were supposed to be members of the jury according to the exhibition catalog, but were not in the final Official Report.

Himself a regular cross country skier, Hermann Kutschera submitted a design for a Ski (Jumping) Stadium to the Olympic art contests. It earned a gold medal, but was never built, the plans being lost during World War II. The German Werner March won a silver medal with the same entry that had earned him and his brother a gold medal in the town planning event. Third place went to an Austria duo, Hermann Stiegholzer and Herbert Kastinger, designing an Arena for car, bicycle and equestrian sports in Vienna.
