The Nose of Tralee
Can Your Pet Take The Title Of 2015 Nose of Tralee?
Pet Sitters Ireland, Ireland’s largest pet care provider, proudly announces the second year of the Annual Nose of Tralee Pet Competition.
Maybe your pet has hidden talents or is just too cute not to show off – then we want to hear from them. We are inviting pets from all 32 counties to enter to be in with a chance to be crowned the 2015 Nose of Tralee.
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. We are looking for cute, funny, talented all around gorgeous pets! No pet is too big or small to enter.
Along with a public vote, the panel of judges will be looking for pets who show real personality and have that flare that a good Nose of Tralee needs. Judges include Comedienne Tara Flynn, Author Lorna Sixsmith and Photographer David McCauley. Our Special Guest Judge is Buster, the 2014 Nose of Tralee.
Kate McQuillan, Managing Director of Pet Sitters Ireland says “The 2014 Nose of Tralee was an overwhelming success and we are delighted to be back for another year of the competition. Buster has been a great Nose of Tralee and I know he is excited to meet this year Nose and hand over his crown! We can’t wait to see all the entries this year and urge people to get their photos in ready for the voting to begin.”
All entries should be submitted online via www.noseoftralee.com by the 16th June.
Once all entries are in then public voting will begin. The 3 pets with the most votes will then go forward to the judging panel. Thirty-two finalists, one representing each county in Ireland, will be announced on 26th July and will receive a commemorative sash. Each winner must then submit a photograph of their pet wearing the sash and public voting of the 32 finalists will commence again on 27th July.
The winner of the Nose of Tralee will be announced on Facebook and Twitter on the 18th August.
The first place winner will be crowned the 2015 Nose of Tralee and will receive a special photo session for themselves and their pet with David McAuley Photography, along with a 200 euro Pet Sitting Voucher.
