Women's 10 metre platform competition at the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics took place from August 20 to August 21, at the Beijing National Aquatics Center. It was an individual diving competition, with dives performed from an inflexible platform (unlike the springboard used for three metre diving) ten metres above the surface of the water.

The individual diving competitions all consist of three rounds. In the first, the 29 divers each perform five dives. The top 18 divers advance to the semifinals. Each diver again performs five dives, and the top 12 divers from among those dives advance to the finals. Preliminary scores are ignored at this point, as only the semifinal scores are considered in advancement. In the final round, the divers perform a final set of five dives, with the scores from those dives (and only those dives) used to determine final ranking.

Seven judges evaluate each dive, giving the diver a score between 0 and 10 with increments of .5; scores below 7.0 or above 9.5 are rare. The two highest and two lowest scores from each judge are dropped. The remaining three scores are summed, and multiplied by the degree of difficulty of the dive to give the total score for the dive. Scores from each dive in the round are summed to give the round score.
