14 competing solvers solved all problems correctly, and were requested to vote for
the three best problems.
13 competitors participated with 21 problems, of which 13 problems by seven composers received at least one vote from the judges.
One judge had lost the papers containing six of the problems, but voted for the three best in what remained. The sum of all votes produced a four-way tie for the first place, and the prizes, announced to be three in number, were presumably adjusted accordingly and divided between the four winners.
