Thank you to the fans who took time to vote for the CJFL Fans Choice Photo of the Year.  1,968 votes were cast (1,246 more than last year) and a winner has been chosen, taking 37% of the votes.

Nicole Bruni captured a GTA Grizzlies running back slicing through the Hamilton Hurricanes defence on "Football Day in Hamilton." The photo displays power and alusiveness of athleticism winning the CJFL Fans Choice Photo of the Year.

About Nicole

I was born in Toronto and have lived in Brampton my whole life.  I work in a law firm in downtown Toronto as a Legal Executive Assistant and in my spare time I do photography and sell Mary Kay Skin Care and Cosmetics.  Photography has always been a passion of mine and continues to be my artistic escape.  I enjoy photographing everything from sports, to family and pets and landscapes.  I am always up for a challenge and revel in trying new techniques and methods for capturing the best shots possible.

Below is the CJFL Fans Choice Photo of the Year along with other examples of Nicole's work.  Congratulations Nicole Bruni, keep up the great work covering the CJFL and GTA Grizzlies!
