Questions for this MAC:
1. What is meant by the term "synthetic". Are we talking about "synthesizer" synths of a digital or analog nature?
2. What are these "plugins" which are spoken of? Do they refer to VSTs, soundfonts, or something completely different?
3. Can a live orchestra be used? If yes, can it be seen as a mere collaboration between author and performer (single-entity); they'll still be credited, of course.
4. Also on the account of live orchestra, is it okay to have a blend of mainly live orchestra, with less realistic sounding VST/VSTi's or otherwise?
5. If no one else, but myself, in a collaboration have an interest in earning a prize, is it okay to be understood that I'll be the only one in the project reaping the rewards?
