The Crayon Bug was a nominee for the Best Newcomer Category in The Independent Awards 2020. Created by Holly & Co, The Independent Awards celebrate the very best creative small businesses across the UK and were supported by NatWest, Three, Dell, Royal Mail and Pinterest.

Holly Tucker, founder of Not On The High Street and Holly & Co, champions small businesses up and down the UK, and in 2020 she elevated her #CampaignShopIndependent by founding the The Independent Awards. In their inaugural year, The Independent Awards received nominations for 50,000 small businesses. The Crayon Bug was shortlisted alongside 117 others for an award, and was one of just 20 businesses in the Best Newcomer Category (for businesses started in the last 18 months.)
