The men's 10 metre platform, also reported as high diving, was one of four diving events on the diving at the 1936 Summer Olympics programme. For the first time, all dives were made exclusively from the 10 metre platform.

The competition was split into two sets of dives on separate days:

  1. Compulsory dives (Friday, August 14)
    Divers performed four pre-chosen dives – a standing straight header forward, running straight header forward, standing straight somersault backward, and standing straight isander-half gainer.
  2. Facultative dives (Saturday, August 15)
    Divers performed four dives of their choice (from different categories and different from the compulsory).

Twenty-six divers from 15 nations competed.
