Thank you for your interest in the Cynopsis Sports Leaderboard.

Entries are now closed, but please visit the events page for more information and to attend the event.

The Cynopsis Sports Leaderboard is open to any organization that utilized its social media platforms to promote its product to sports fans throughout 2015. From global brands to local stations, from million-dollar campaigns to viral-on-a-budget, social media has proven to be the great equalizer. Entries are open to leagues, teams, networks, brands, agencies, digital platforms and more!
