The men's 10 metre platform, also reported as high diving, was one of four diving events on the diving at the 1928 Summer Olympics programme. The competition was actually held from both 10 metre and 5 metre boards. Divers performed four compulsory dives – running plain dive, backward somersault (5 metre platform), standing plain dive, running plain dive (10 metre platform) – and four dives of the competitor's choice (different from the compulsory), from either platform, for a total of eight dives. The competition was held from Thursday August 9, 1928 to Saturday August 11, 1928.

Twenty-four divers from twelve nations competed.
