[Download the guidelines in PDF Format here]

Be a part of Xero Error Film through your artistic or creative talent! Inviting all creatives for ‘The Art of Xero Error’ Competition.

Have our Cybrog hero XE7 do something cool. Whether he’s jumping off the rooftops, greeting Obama at the White house on the cover of Time-Travel magazine or saving the world in general! XE7 is the protagonist of the film ‘Xero Error’, the first computer generated Scifi Film from Dubai UAE. 

You don’t have to be an award winning artist to participate. We’re accepting any medium for entries as long as they are creative and original in approach: sketches / drawings / paintings / sculpting / lego / straws / ascii art / a whole bunch of people standing together to make an image / finger painting / class project / graffiti … you get the picture.

Outstanding entries will be featured in a major scene in the Xero Error Film!

Winners will be :

  • Credited as part of the team that made Xero Error in the film credits
  • Listed on the official IMDb page
  • Featured as a major story on the Xero Error Website
  • Entitled to receive Xero Error merchandise, tickets & other goodies at the time of release. We will be getting sponsors to donate some cool prizes for this event – details to be announced at a later date.

All participants will receive publicity on the Web Site and their work will be featured at an art exhibition organized in Dubai.

Wish we had loads of money to give away to make it worth your while but alas we are struggling artists trying to make a difference by making the first CG Movie from the region and we need your support!

XE7 Superpowers

XE7 can shoot arcs of electricity from his finger tips and ankles. He has a ‘skin’ that can mimic surroundings and heal itself. XE7 also has super fast reflexes and enhanced senses. He is an expert in many forms of hand to hand combat.


XE7 was sent back in time to record history. His dreams can end up in his recorded data. When not in a combat situation, XE7’s skin displays animated brand endorsements. A contractual obligation.
