The judges did not have many choices, as the Official Report lists 22 pieces of music that were entered, from 15 artists in 9 countries. Because the jury was not satisfied with most of the submitted works, it acted consistently and awarded only a bronze medal for orchestral music but no other award. There must have been a preliminary judging in Amsterdam because the Official Report noted that not all jurors had to arrive due to the low quality of the works. As explained in the category Compositions For Orchestra no medals were awarded as the jury was not satisfied with the submissions. No prominent musicians took part.
