I am Keith Bacongco, a multimedia journalist based in Davao City. I learned to read, write and think in a sleepy town of Pigcawayan in North Cotabato. At 17, I joined a weekly community newspaper Headliner in Cotabato City in 1998.

I have been a part Mindanews, a news agency managed by Mindanaon journalists, since its inception in 2001.  I also used to write for the Manila Times, (the defunct) Today and Business Mirror.

In 2008, I earned a Diploma on Photojournalism at the Asian Center for Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila University.

I’m currently a staff photographer of  Manila Bulletin.
