The Reverse Prompt-a-Thon is a creative competition in which participants are presented with random images, which will be AI-generated, and they are tasked with creatively writing prompts that would yield similar images when used with AI tools like DALL-E. Participants compete to create the most compatible prompts for a set of ten images. Points are awarded based on the compatibility of the prompts with the images and similarity of the prompt with the original prompt, and the participant with the most points at the end of the competition is declared the winner.

General Rules

  • Image Selection: Ten random images will be selected prior to the event, with some of them being AI-generated using tools like DALL-E. The prompts used to generate the images will be kept confidential.
  • Prompt Generation: Participants will be presented with one image at a time. They will have a set time limit (e.g., 5 minutes) to create a prompt for the given image. The prompt should be concise and descriptive, aiming to instruct an AI tool to generate a similar image.
  • Prompt Submission: Participants will be informed regarding this during the event.
  • Winner Determination: The participant with the highest total points at the end of the ten images wins the Reverse Prompt-a-Thon. In the event of a tie, the judges may conduct a tiebreaker round using additional images and prompts.
  • Participants are expected to maintain fair play and sportsmanship throughout the competition. Plagiarism or any form of cheating is strictly prohibited and may result in disqualification. In case of any discrepancy, the decision of the coordinators will be final.
