The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award for Conradi in 2016:

"This year's winner has a multifaceted talent. He has performed assignments within musical theatre, contemporary drama and classic works, and he has proven that he masters the entire range of genres. The role he now receives the award for belongs to the classics. The award winner expands the understanding for a character that many spectators have likely thought they already knew. With nuanced presence, he shows the complex motivations behind the words. Wisely, he provides insight into human development, and into the complex influence and significance of power mechanisms, in what is one of the mightiest manipulator roles in world drama."

Conradi was among the artistic directors for The Torshov Theatre 2000-2003.

Conradi was given Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation's radio drama division's honorary award Blå Fugl in 2007 for the role of Falk in Henrik Ibsen's Love's Comedy.
