An exhibition of 100 photographs showing the effects of climate change around the world  -- from floods in India to melting ice in Antarctica -- went on display at the United Nations' climate summit in Morocco. World leaders and scientists have converged in Marrakech for the conference.

Winners of a worldwide photography competition were shown in the exhibition "The World -- In Focus." 

Youth were invited to participate in the competition and 75 images by kids were selected by US-based photography charity, the Lucie Foundation. Another 25 images were selected by the National Geographic magazine from its Your Shot members.
