Screenplay copyright

I want to send my screenplay to some competitions. But since my script is very unique and original because it's based on a true story, I'm afraid someone may copy my idea. It's not illegal for the ideas to be copied, isn't it?

So I'm kind of reluctant to do so. I may make the film myself instead. But because of the pandemic, which no one knows how long it's going to last, so I don't want to take the risk to make the film myself. So it may be easier to sell the script instead. But then I worry that my idea could be copied. So my question is, is it a good idea to send your original manuscript to screenplay competitions in terms of copyright and copycats?

Any help would very much be appreciated. Thanks.
