Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of The Executive Council, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF), has issued directives to organise the Global Prompt Engineering Championship in May 2024.

Featuring a total prize of Dh1 million, the championship is the largest challenge of its kind to leverage the power of Generative AI. The challenge will be organised through a partnership between DFF and the Dubai Centre for Artificial Intelligence.

The global event, to be held at the Museum of the Future, will include three main categories: literature, art and coding. The championship aims to strengthen Dubai and the UAE’s position as a destination for Generative AI talent and entrepreneurs as well as a centre for developing a new generation of innovations associated with prompt engineering.

Sheikh Hamdan emphasised that Dubai follows a proactive approach inspired by the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. This approach aims to accelerate digital transformation and provide support for promising technologies in the digital world. Dubai achieves this through an integrated digital infrastructure that encourages and empowers programmers, entrepreneurs and startups to shape the future and develop solutions for global challenges.

“The Global Prompt Engineering Championship is aligned with Dubai’s efforts to become a destination for leading talent and a platform for Generative AI startups. The competition is launched in line with our leadership’s directives to develop Generative AI solutions and unlock the potential of this futuristic sector,” said the Crown Prince.

"Dubai has solidified its position as a leading global hub for the future, fostering an environment conducive to the growth of AI tools and solutions.
