I want to say that my paper was selected from a bunch of others, to emphasize that my paper was impressive. How do I say that in a correct way and without using too many words?

What I have so far:

I was interviewed to discuss the findings of my paper, which was selected out of all/among/from all the other reports...

  • Btw, among also requires from: "from among". Do not use "other". "which was selected from among all the reports... " HTH.

  • "I want to say that my paper was selected from a bunch of others". Dude. Dude. You just did. And you didn't even notice. You answered your question before even asking it.

  • What you should really be concerned about is not the from but the other. How can you select your paper from other papers? That is just not humanly possible. You can select your paper from all papers, but not from papers that are expressly not yours.

choose among TFD an idiom

choose among (people or things)

to select from a group of options.

As in:

I was interviewed to discuss the findings of my paper, which was chosen among all the submissions.

If you want to boast that your paper was unique you could use the expression singled out as in :

"I was interviewed to discuss the findings of my paper, which was singled out from all the other reports..."

Definition of single out in Merriam_Webster online:

"to treat or to speak about (someone or something in a group) in a way that is different from the way one treats or speaks about others The coach singled out the players who played poorly. The reviewer singled her performance out for praise/criticism. —often used as (be) singled out She was singled out for special treatment."
