In a groundbreaking move towards embracing the future, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid, Crown Prince of Dubai and the Chairman of the Executive Council, recently unveiled plans for the Global Prompt Engineering Championship. This innovative challenge focuses on generative artificial intelligence, marking a significant step in Dubai’s trajectory toward the future economy. The winners of this prestigious competition are set to receive a total of Dh1 million ($272,290), adding a competitive edge to the emirate’s technological aspirations.
Scheduled to take place in May next year at the iconic Museum of the Future, the Global Prompt Engineering Championship is described as the “largest challenge of its kind.” This announcement underscores Dubai’s commitment to becoming a global hub for talent and a platform for burgeoning generative AI startups.
The competition aligns seamlessly with the leadership’s vision to cultivate generative AI solutions and unlock the immense potential of this futuristic sector. Sheikh Hamdan emphasised the importance of the challenge in the context of Dubai’s broader efforts, stating, “The Global Prompt Engineering Championship is aligned with Dubai’s efforts to become a destination for leading talent and a platform for generative AI start-ups.”

The two-day event will kick off with the selection of the top 30 prompt engineering programmers on the first day. These finalists will then engage in the final phase on the second day, competing in categories such as literature, art, and coding. The competition will evaluate completed projects based on criteria such as speed, quality, and accuracy, ensuring a comprehensive assessment of the participants’ capabilities.
Dubai’s forward-thinking approach to technology and innovation has positioned it as a leader in the adoption of generative AI within the GCC. Ali Hosseini, Chief Digital Officer and Partner at PwC Middle East highlighted the UAE’s enthusiasm for generative AI, stating that the Emirates “has demonstrated its readiness for exponential change, emphasising that AI is not eliminating jobs but rather transforming them.”
This move aligns with global trends, as indicated by a report from Goldman Sachs forecasting a potential global investment of $200 billion in AI by 2025. Dubai’s proactive stance on embracing generative AI not only reinforces its status as a technologically advanced city but also positions it as an attractive destination for businesses looking to harness the benefits of cutting-edge technology.
The Global Prompt Engineering Championship is more than just a competition; it symbolises Dubai’s commitment to shaping its future through technological advancements. By fostering an environment that encourages innovation, the emirate is not only attracting top talent but also creating opportunities for businesses to thrive in the ever-evolving landscape of generative AI. This initiative marks a significant step forward, illustrating Dubai’s dedication to change and progress for the betterment of its people and the global community.
