Then probably you don't need encryption at all. Or you only need
symmetric encryption (same key used both for enc and dec).

Possible, but stupid (IMVHO). If you think VM access control is enough,
then just use it and don't encrypt the file.
Submission can be handled with a correct ACL (in *nix it could be
rwxrwx-wx on a folder: only members of the group will be able to read
the files in it, but every user can put his file there -- we used this
method for lab projects).
Another way can be a web form that stores an uploaded file in a private

PGP is not a "magic bullet": he does what it's designed to do (and I
think it does it quite well), but won't prevent you from using it in
really insecure ways. *SECRET* keys are called that way for a reason.
