Simply take a photo of you (or your family or friends), smiling at any of the buffet-style restaurants and upload it to the sweepstakes microsite for your chance to win beginning Monday, April 1, 2013. Each week, one lucky shutterbug will win a digital camera. There is no purchase necessary to participate.

Smile and Say Cheese at Ryan's, Hometown Buffet and Old Country Buffet for a Chance to Win a Digital Camera“For many families, meal time is one of those times we come together and share special moments,” said Alice Crowder, Vice President of Marketing for Buffets, Inc. “Our Say Cheese sweepstakes provides a fun opportunity for families to capture those moments, share them with others, and maybe even win a prize.”

Winning is a snap – literally!

Put your best face forward and snap a shot of yourself or your party watching a Chef make a customized Mongolian Stir Fry or a Grill Master carving a juicy steak. Capture a family member building a fresh creation at the salad bar, enjoying a sweet treat at the dessert bar, posing in front of the restaurant, or just the crowd gathered at the table sharing a meal. To submit your photo, “Like” one of the official Facebook pages to access the sweepstakes microsite, or visit any of the brand websites for access to the microsite. Drawings will take place each Monday from April 8 through May 27, 2013.

Everyone has a shot at winning! Each participant will receive a coupon just for submitting a photo. Anyone not selected to receive a weekly prize will be automatically entered into the next week’s drawing, so entering early is a great idea.

Must be at least 18 years old, and a U.S. or D.C. resident to participate. The sweepstakes is subject to full official rules, and void where prohibited.
