Our super curricular programme encompasses Academic Societies which are scheduled in response to the academic aspirations of the DLD students. In addition we run a number of competitions throughout the academic year.
Building on the success of the Winter academic essay competition, DLD College London is launching our Summer essay writing competition and this year’s topic concerns social media, its effects on society and regulation.
Please answer the following question:
‘To what extent does social media have a positive impact on society, should all people have platform accounts, and should social media be further regulated?’
From research and your own knowledge, analyse and evaluate whether social media is a force for good overall, should everyone have social media accounts, and should platforms be further regulated.
This question can be approached from a variety of angles including psychological, business, economical, geographical, political and sociological.
Essays should be no longer than 1500 words and the submission deadline will be 20th May 5pm. Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
