ENR Photo Contest: ENR invites readers to submit photos to its annual The Year In Construction photo contest in the fall.

We then look for dynamic, well-composed and aesthetically pleasing photos; but only those that show safe conditions and behavior. A panel of judges from ENR, with guests, recently selected the best of the best photos submitted for publication in ENR. The winning photos were published each January. You can view past ENR Year in Construction winners' Gallery online. The call for submissions will go out in Fall 2020 for the next cycle.
