The competition evaluates participants’ proficiency in innovating AI prompts through generative AI applications across three categories: Coding, Art, and Literature.

Prompt engineering has emerged as a critical skill in light of the recent surge in generative AI applications such as ‘ChatGPT’ and ‘Midjourney’. A total of 30 finalists will be chosen through a voting system, with ten finalists selected in each of the three categories who will advance to compete in Dubai. These participants will undergo evaluation by a jury comprising academics, innovators, and technology and AI experts based on criteria such as the speed, quality, and accuracy of their content.

Khalfan Belhoul, CEO of the DFF, said, “The Global Prompt Engineering Championship will attract some of the most promising talents in the field of AI from around the world. This international gathering in Dubai serves to highlight the key future skills that will shape the trajectory of AI.”

“This event aligns with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, and the directives of H.H.
