In 2003 Finn Iunker was nominated as the Norwegian candidate for The Nordic Drama Prize with two of the plays in the book Tre Skuespill* (Three Plays), Iphigeneia and Dealing with Helen

Iphigeneia and Dealing with Helen build on two tragedies by Euripides, in a manner making them significant expressions of our own time. The plays were watched by close to 7000 persons when performed in Antwerp during the summer of 2003. In 2006 Iphigeneia was staged in Lisbon by Antònio Simão, who has also staged Play Alter Native, the third play of the book.

Finn Iunker won the national Norwegian Ibsen Award in 2006.
