N:

39 compositions were received, of which 12 were incorrect, and one withdrawn by its author. Remaining 26 problems were published in Nationaltidende as well as Nordisk Skaktidende prior to the final report.

The report does not state that the hm. awards are in order by merit, so no such order should be imposed. The hm. problems, together with the extra pr. problem as nr. 3, were given by the judges as those next in merit to the prize problems, and from which the extra pr. should be selected, assuming that one of them fitted the requirements for that prize.
