Vice pays  its contributors variable amounts, but, for example, 14 cents a word for a 1,000-word opinion piece = $140.
All unsolicited editorial pitches and submissions should be routed through CAeditor@vice.com
For photography submissions: photocanada@vice.com
“Unfortunately, due to the high volume of submissions, VICE editorial is unable to respond to each one individually. It is not advisable to email unsolicited pitches to VICE editors directly, and doing so is a good way to ensure your email address ends up marked as spam.  Please allow 60 days for your submission to be received and reviewed. If at the end of 60 days you have not received a response from a VICE editorial staffer, it is safe to assume that we are not interested in your story.
