Pulitzer winner to keynote convention

January 13, 2012

Mark Konkol, who with a team of Chicago Sun-Times staff members won a Pulitzer Prize for Local Reporting in 2011, will be the keynote speaker at the 29th Annual ICPA Convention Feb. 17-18 at the Double Tree Hotel Chicago Magnificent Mile, 300 E. Ohio St.

Konkol, a writer at-large at the Sun-Times, was part of a team that examined the “immersive documentation of violence in Chicago neighborhoods, probing the lives of victims, criminals and detectives as a widespread code of silence impedes solutions.”
