Screenwriting & Short Film Contests

How do people here feel about these kinds of contests?
I see a lot of the posts but most have no replies.
Is that because it's sorta like giving money away, & when you send your work, it's like you're giving that away for free too cuz someone can just take your idea?
Any thoughts about it?
Have any of you entered & can talk about your experience?

I don't believe anyone will take ideas. But I do believe the objective
of all the contests is to make money so it's sort of like giving money
away.

Many writers like the feedback they get and if you win that always
boosts your ego.
