First off, I must say that this is a pretty cool contest idea and I wish you a trillion of entries.

Ok, great. I'm less than a month on Newgrounds, and I don't know much about the mascots. The more reason to delve into it. Making a list would be too restricting on the artists indeed. There are a couple of characters from well viewed videos and games (exclusively) on here, that I like. I'll figure something out. Thanks.
Hey there, actually I think you are not the only user who asks himself this question and above that I think it doesn't hurt if we all get more inspiration on this.
First of all there is the "Series" section found under "Channels" that has a place for some of the most famous characters on NG. NOT ALL characters of those series qualify as "mascots" however, but it may help some of us remember a gem or two which we would otherwise not consider for this contest, who knows?
Then, I can highly recommend checking the NG Print Calendar threads from previous years, since hold a real treasure of great NG themed art. Here are the individual links (I hope I don't screw them up):
NG Print Calendar 2012
NG Print Calendar 2011
2010 NG Calendar Reborn
NG Print Calendar '09
You find links to the talk threads (with WIP's that never got finished for example) in the opening posts.
I hope looking through these drawings inspires you as much as it inpsired me.... or hopefully it inspires you more, since I still don't know what to draw. :P
