I am Keith Bacongco, a multimedia journalist based in Davao City. I learned to read and write in a sleepy town of Pigcawayan in North Cotabato. While in college, I joined a weekly community newspaper Headliner in Cotabato City in 1998.
I have been a part Mindanews, an online news agency managed by Mindanaon journalists, since its inception in 2001. I also used to contribute photos and stories to Manila Times, Today (defunct) and Business Mirror.
In 2008, I earned a Diploma on Photojournalism at the Asian Center for Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila University. I have worked on several projects with local and international organizations such as Oxfam, Catholic Relief Services and United Nations Multi-Donor Program.
I’m currently a staff photographer of Manila Bulletin.
