Sandy Nicholson documents the competitors who are forgotten about and under-celebrated – the second-place finishers. Nicholson visited a range of fierce Canadian competitions, including the Air Guitar Finals, the Dance Sport Championships, rodeos, a spelling bee, a hamburger-eating contest and The Pillow Fight League. Each event draws an expected slice of a specific subculture.
