 The Mike Goheen Memorial Award for Emerging Photographers honors the longtime Member of The Co, Mike Goheen, and his legacy and passion for photography. The award was established in 2017 by Mike’s partner and supporter of The Co, Craig Schrolucke, and provides $500 as cash prizes to photographers participating in the Biennial Member and Student Invitational. The award is one of the largest of its kind in the region and is awarded every two years to a photographer who demonstrates experimental photographic methods. This year, the award will be selected by Tracy Longley-Cook, Associate Professor of Photography, Wright State University.

Tracy Longley-Cook has a BFA from the University of Washington (1997) and MFA in photography from Arizona State University (2007).
