The Cynopsis Best Of The Best Awards salute excellence in national TV programming, campaigns and more. In addition, we recognize outstanding achievement across teams, platforms, and overall merit in social good, kids, and – new this year – Work From Home and COVID-19 initiatives.
The Rising Star Awards program highlights stand-out performers, innovators and emerging leaders in the TV Media industry who are 35 years old or younger, but have the passion, talent and creativity to take the industry to new heights.
Winning a Cynopsis trophy is acknowledgement from your peers – and from the leading B2B digital publication in our industry — that your work has risen to the top in entertaining and enriching a broad audience.
Join Cynopsis as we honor stand-out performers, innovators and emerging leaders in the TV Media industry. These young professionals’ experience spans research, sports, digital, content and marketing and their work over the past year will be judged by a panel of industry experts.
