To enter the Nose of Tralee competition, pet owners must submit a photograph of their pet, along with details of why their pet would make a good Nose of Tralee. They are looking for cute, funny, talented all round gorgeous pets. No pet is too big or small to enter.

The winner, decided by public vote, will receive the following

• Title Of 2016 Nose Of Tralee
• A Mini Ipad and a 200 euro Pet Sitting Voucher from Pet Sitters Ireland

Along with a public vote, the panel of judges will be looking for pets who show real personality and have that flair that a good Nose of Tralee needs. Judges include comedienne Tara Flynn, author Lorna Sixsmith and photographer David McCauley. The special guest judge is Ginger, the 2015 Nose of Tralee.
