While each regional ENR editor strives to notify firms individually about editorial opportunities in ENR’s regional publications, every so often an email address is missed or a reminder doesn’t reach the intended recipient. This guide is intended to provide an overview of current and upcoming editorial opportunities, rankings and call for entries in the regional editions.
We publicize our various surveys and opportunities throughout the year on our website, enr.com. You can access other regions via the Regions dropdown at the top of the page. Also be sure to subscribe to Engineering News-Record on LinkedIn and Facebook!
